Photography has played an important part in my life since I was around 18. Although only a hobby at first, I've worked as a professional freelance landscape and location photographer for the past twenty years'. Specialising in capturing some of the rich and diverse countryside, gardens, architecture and historical locations of England and Wales.

In 2018, my photography became a very much smaller part of what I do. Photographic shoots were making a back injury sustained way back in my early secondary school days more painful. And it was taking me longer to recover from each location shoot I did. So a change was needed. The emphasis has switched to writing more, which is why I'm now only fitting in any photography as and when time and conditions allow. I couldn't give it up totally, I enjoy it too much - even if it is painful!

Much of my photography has been created for stock - images that are used in magazines, books and newspapers as well as for promotional and advertising use too. With the odd commission mixed in. And that still remains the case, only on a reduced scale.

So, if you need an evocative picture or two to accompany some carefully crafted words - after all, together they let you say so much more, - you need look no further. I can work on either a commissioned basis, creating bespoke images for your project; so long as what you're after could be said to fall within the areas I specialise in: Landscapes, Gardens, Architecture, Historical locations/attractions. Or I may well have suitable images already on file. Failing that, I can help you source just the right image from among the many online picture agencies.

Whether you need pictures for Business promotion or Advertising; bespoke corporate Calendar, a Magazine feature or Book illustration, Packaging/P.O.S, Commercial products or possibly a Large-format Display, I provide a professional service that aims to supply you with well-crafted and evocative pictures at a fair price.
