A bit about myself…..

Me in the snow.jpg

My photographic story isn’t probably your typical one - I didn’t have a lifelong love with the camera, and I’m probably quite new to Landscape Photography (I began in early 2016). I was like many who’ve lived in the Lake District all their lives, I was actually a touch ignorant to the beauty in my surroundings, I guess familiarity can make us all that way a little bit.

That changed in early 2016 when on a whim and in need of some escapism I took up fell walking, and like many landscapers my love with the camera started just taking a few snaps to document my travels, but quickly developed into a passion which I know will last me a lifetime. A new love of my local landscape was formed (and what a landscape it is!) and i’ve not looked back.

In May 2018 I took the plunge and became a full-time Professional, opening a my gallery in Keswick - Lens District Gallery, which is beginning to flourish and vindicated my decision to leave my previous job at Sellafield.
