"Original pictures cannot be created by the slavish following of classical precedent, but must be discovered by trial and error..."
William Charles Penn, 1877 - 1968, Liverpool School of Art
I am primarily an outdoor photographer and I only work with available light.  I am happiest photographing in our wilder places; in the mountains, on the coast and by lakes and rivers.  As a general rule I enjoy finding creative ways of portraying what I see, rather than making literal representations.
Having grown up in Fife in Scotland, I now live on the Wirral peninsula in north west England.  I am an active member of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and was a founder member of the society's specialist landscape group.  In 2021 I was awarded the Fenton Medal and honorary life membership for "outstanding contribution to the work of the society". In 2022 I was awarded the prestigious Fellowship of the RPS, the society's highest distinction.

I also teach photography to individuals and groups, exhibit my work from time to time and I give talks about it to clubs and societies. ​​​​​​​Click here for more information.

As well as being a photographer, I am an active environmentalist. If you too are concerned about humanity's impact on our environment, you might be interested in this initiative for photographers: https://www.uplus2.org
