I live in East Sussex although I grew up on the island of Jersey. I still retain an affinity for seascapes and coastal views even though I no longer have a beautiful beach on my back doorstep.

My approach to photography is greatly informed by my background in painting and I use in-camera multiple exposure and ICM (intentional camera movement) to blur detail and abstract shapes in the landscape.

I am driven by an exploration of colour and form. My objective is to create multi-layered images that depict the subtleties of the landscape around us. I am more concerned with portraying an interpretation rather than a literal representation of what I see before me.

I have been fortunate to have been tutored by some highly talented and inspirational professionals, most notably Jay Maisel and the time spent with him and his impressive array of guest speakers in New York continues to influence the way I approach my work.

I enjoy trying to push the boundaries of what photography is about and I strive to produce work that has movement and energy. A pivotal moment for me was coming across the work of Chris Friel and subsequently being tutored in the alternative techniques needed to produce such results by Doug Chinnery.
I have been influenced by many great talents; some of my inspirations include aforementioned Jay MaiselRaphael Shevelev,  Chris Friel , Rob Hudson and Doug Chinnery. Also Susan BurnstineFay GodwinErnst HaasAaron SiskindAndre KerteszVivian MaierSarah MoonArnold NewmanKlavdij SlubanAlexey TitarenkoCharlie Waite to name just a few. 

Painters whose work I particularly admire include Bonnard, Cezanne, Chagall, Diebenkorn, Kandinsky, 

Klee, Matisse, Rothko, Van GoghFrankenthaler and many others too numerous to mention.

Thank you for taking the time to visit.

Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.
