Thanks for stopping by my website. Hope you like what you've seen so far, but let me tell you a bit more about myself and my photography.
I live in Shrewsbury with my cat Dylan (yes, named after Bob Dylan).
When I'm not out taking photos, I like nothing more than enjoying a coffee in one of my many favourite coffee shops, ideally in a window seat so I can people watch.
Music is important to me, whether it's checking out live music locally, strumming along to one of my favourite tunes on guitar or belting out a song (in the privacy of my car, when I'm on my own - I have some dignity!!).
I can quite easily get lost in a film, not necessarily the big blockbusters but some of the more quirky films - Amelie for example is one of my all time favourites. Although being photography obsessed I sometimes get distracted by the way a scene is lit, or the angle it is shot at.
And now my photography.
Creativity is a big part of my life and I find photography a great way to express myself. I'm always taking pictures, even if I don't have a camera with me. What I mean by that is I take pictures with my eyes, finding beauty in the mundane and seeing the extraordinary in the ordinary.
I often notice fleeting moments that are usually missed by others, but in that one brief second a whole world of emotion and feeling is opened up to me. That is why my photography is as much about what I feel as what I see. Capturing those fleeting moments is what I do best.
So I hope you understand when I say photography isn't a job or a career, its a way of life.
I first got into photography as a child in the 70's when I was given a Kodak Instamatic. This was of course the pre-digital age so you had to wait what seemed like a lifetime to get your film back from the developers, but that just added to the excitement and anticipation for me.
Nowadays I work mainly on digital but I am grateful to have learnt my craft with film and in the darkroom as I believe this has made me a better photographer.
Feel free to check out my other social media sites and if you like what you see then get in touch, I'd love to hear from you.
