I am a full time, professional teacher, printer, writer & photographer.
I haven’t won any awards.
In addition to running my own program of workshops I am proud to be a leader for Charlie Waites Light & Land photography tour company, as well as teaching printing and colour management for The Fotospeed Academy.
I do all of my own printing from my studio near Sheffield. My prints are bought by collectors world-wide. I also print for Valda Bailey & Chris Friel, serving the exacting needs of their clients.
I have been widely published in many photography magazines and write regularly for Outdoor Photography and On Landscape. I give practical lectures and workshops to photographic societies and organisations across the country and have been interviewed several times on BBC Radio. I have exhibited at the National Theatre in London, The Joe Cornish Gallery in Northallerton and The Mall Galleries in London as well as having solo exhibitions at The Image Gallery, Calverton, The Trinity Arts Centre, Gainsborough and at the Peak District National Park Centre in Bakewell, Derbyshire .
I list Chris Friel, Valda Bailey, Saul Leiter and Michael Kenna as among my primary inspirations. I have a full list of photographers and artists I admire HERE.
I think sharpness is over-rated, I believe the Photography Police can only exist if we allow them to and I would like to be a much better photographer than I am.
I refuse to write in the third person.
