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.
Alternatively, you hear me talking about photography on a episode of the Shrewsbury Biscuit Podcast:
