ABOUT ME

“WHEN WORDS BECOME UNCLEAR, I SHALL FOCUS WITH PHOTOGRAPHS. WHEN IMAGES BECOME INADEQUATE, I SHALL BE CONTENT WITH SILENCE.” ― Ansel Adams
I’m a non-award winning and published once photographer based in Sheffield on the edge of the Peak District in England.  I tend towards landscape, environmental and nature photography in what I do, but have been known from time to time to dabble in street photography. The Peak District, Snowdonia in North Wales, the Lake District and the Outer Hebrides of Scotland are all places that I love to photograph when I get the opportunity. For me,  my photography is about capturing the moment (or moments as time passes) and conveying a sense of place.   I have been introduced to the German word “waldeinsamkeit”  – a feeling of solitude, being alone in the woods and a connectedness to nature.  “Waldeinsamkeit” best describes what photography and particularly film photography does for me – an opportunity to slow down and enjoy the peace and quiet of nature.  Perhaps its more about my experience of taking the picture than the picture itself – who knows.

Hodge Close in the Lake District

Back in November I headed to the Lake District for what had been planned as 4 days of photography became only 2 due to the incessant rain.  It was still good to get up to the Lakes and explore, and of course I would have loved to have spent longer in the Lake... read more
