I was born in Chester and now live in Church Stretton. I have a scientific background which culminated as a research geologist at the University of Birmingham. I have been interested in photography since I was a child and my skills are self-taught. In the last ten years I have been able to devote much more time to photography and find the parallels between art and science fascinating, since both require careful observation of the world around us to perceive the beauty within.
My passion is landscape photography and the captivating uncertainty of the British weather, which usually cooperates just long enough to encapsulate and convey not just a sense of place, but also mood. I am particularly drawn to the hills and coast where these elements are often at their most expressive and evocative.
I am a member of the RPS and about to become a student again as I embark this year on a degree course to explore further the wonderful world of photography!
