Born in Ipswich in 1974, I have enjoyed spending time in the countryside for as long as I can remember and began to study Environmental Conservation in 1990. It was here that I fully learned to appreciate the delicate balance of nature and the challenges it faces, from the intricate eco systems of the heathlands to the issues of coastal erosion. I try to bring my knowledge of the environment in to the work I produce, documenting the landscape around us and representing it in my own style.
In 2004 I decided to concentrate exclusively on landscapes. Since then my work has been published in magazines, books and calendars, as well as being sold in a variety of retailers
and exhibited in a number of galleries.
At present my work is represented by six agencies both nationally and internationally.
I work with digital equipment using a Canon EOS 5D and a Canon lens for all my work. I try to make use of the dramatic light found at the beginning and end of the day to bring a sense of atmosphere to landscapes I am photographing. There are no colour filters used in any of my photographs as I believe that the natural light and colours that can be found at these times of day are dramatic enough, so I feel there is no need to add anything extra. The only filters I use are a polarizer and ND grads to balance exposure and saturation. I aim to present the landscape in a way that is both interesting and sympathetic to the location. When I'm working in my native county of Suffolk the flat nature of the region means the sky features heavily in the image, because of the geography and geology of East anglia it is not graced with high peaks and rocky coastlines so a good sky can help to add interest and depth to an image.
