I'm a tour leader running workshops in Morocco & Spain. I graduated with a degree in Photographic Studies from Derby College in 1992 before directing documentaries and programmes for UK TV. As a photographer I currently specialise in more intimate landscape views and realist portraiture. Both offer different working methods and satisfy my quest to primarily document subjects closest to home.

Working in the medium format digital domain, the images shown here are from July 2016 onwards. During this period I've been keen to develop my own work and prefer projects to single images emphasising a consistency of approach within locations.

“Why is Form beautiful? Because, I think, it helps us confront our worst fear, the suspicion that life may be chaos and that therefore our suffering is without meaning.” – Robert Adams
