My Photography interest has spanned some thirty plus years and has evolved from darkroom to digital.
My years in the darkroom were an important learning curve that has helped me to pre visualise in the digital age.
I am a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society, and sit on the both the Licentiate and am Deputy Chair of The Fine Art Panel. I also sit on the Distinctions Advisory Board.
I am PermaJet Lecturer (Makers of fine art printing papers), a Member of the Devon Guild of Craftsmen, a Member of Arena Group of Photographers, and part of an Art Co operative, ARTSIX, a multi disciplinary group in the South Hams in Devon and also A Member of LCUK (Landscape Collectives), a small group of well known Landscape Photographers.
I exhibit widely both in the UK and overseas, some exhibitions are listed on the 'Exhibitions' page. Exhibitions include Meniere Gallery London, Gallery OXO in London, and the Grant Bradley Gallery in Bristol. I also exhibit in various Hospitals as part of my interest in Arts in Health.
My work has been published in several magazines and books, most recently 'The Coast' - a book by 5 Arena members and a personal book on my 'Swimming with the Tide' Portfolio as an Arena Edition. I had an 8 page article in Advanced Photographer Magazine and featured Photographer in 'onlandscape'. I have also had a total of 6 images commended in Landscape Photographer of the Year Publications 3 of which were exhibited in the National Theatre. 2 images published in RPS Portfolio 3. I had a double page spread in the Western Morning News.
I have had images accepted in the Royal Photographic Society's International Exhibition, which tours the UK, for 3 consecutive years. Also 3 consecutive years have had acceptances in the London Salon of Photography and the Edinburgh International that coincides with the Edinburgh International Festival.
I have been interviewed by BBC Radio 4 for PM on Landscape Photography.
I specialise in long exposure work at the coast but my interests are wide ranging.

The eye does not always see things the way the camera does. I consider photography to be the art form of painting with available light. Changing intensity, colour and direction of light results in a change of mood of the same elements. I respond to the intrinsic power of light that continuously alters shape and form. Further changes can be made by exposure and shutter speed, tools uniquely available to the photographer. Some of my images encapsulate a moment in time. Others are ethereal, dreamlike and considered, so requiring planning and long time exposures to see beneath the 'seen' image.
