ABOUT

I have spent the past 20 years making images for other people!


Let me elaborate, for the past 20 years I have worked in advertising, TV & Film as a Visual Effects artist, sometimes known as CGI or VFX, its a fantastic job and I've worked on some amazingly creative projects for some of the best VFX Studios in the world and while I do get to contribute  a certain amount of creativity to a project there are many other people who need to see and have a say in the final outcome on the work . You do feel very much a small cog in a big machine.


One of the reasons I got into landscape photography was to create images for me and just me... how selfish i know!    To not be tied to a desk for months at a time , but to be outdoors in nature, in that moment with my camera and my vision has been liberating.  Those 20 years have helped develop an eye for composition and colour aesthetic which I now apply to my photography both in the field and in processing. My approaach to both shooting and processing is simplicity, to be able to get my vision into my camera and processed with the least amount of hoops to jump through, to have a final image to print or share on social media or whatever !

For the past 5 years I've run several workshops throughout the year in various locations.

As I wind down the VFX work I hope to be able increase the number of workshops ,in more locations, and share my approach of simplicity to enable you to capture your shots and process the vision you have .
