I am originally from the North West of England, but have been living and working
between The Netherlands and the UK for over 11 years.
The Netherlands has very little in the way of natural wilderness, so I always try to combine my frequent trips home
to see family and friends with getting out in the landscape with my camera.
My interest in photography started in my late teenage years, but my real passion began over 20 years ago
when I purchased my first film camera.
I loved (and still do) the processes involved with film especially the anticipation of not knowing how my images would turn out.
But more often than not I would be disappointed with the results. So after some deliberation I decided in 2009 to purchase
my first digital camera a Canon 5D MKII.
Since going digital my enthusiasm for getting out and capturing the landscape around me has increased, mostly due to the instantaneous
results digital offers.
I do, however, still believe in applying the same methodology with digital as with film of getting as much of it right in the camera and spending
as little time as possible behind a PC.
All of my photography seen here is digital and taken in and around the British Isles and especially on and off the West Coast of Scotland.
I truly believe that for me, Britain and especially Scotland has some of the most beautiful and awe inspiring landscapes of anywhere in the world.
