I am a Travel and Landscape photographer based in Somerset UK. I am Passionate about both landscape and travel photography.
Within my work I hope to connect and communicate my feelings to the viewer, rather than a record of whats in front of me I want to evoke feeling and mood within my images.
Before photography I was a Chef working in many prestigious hotels and restaurants, both in the UK and abroad. I liken photography to cooking in many ways. Both are artistic, at times frustrating and you never stop learning.
I read these lines from a book from one of my photographic heroes, 'Eliot Porter' Taken from an old gravestone, they sum up my feelings perfectly.
The wonder of the world
The beauty and the power,
The shape of things,
Their colours, lights and shades,
These I saw.
Look ye also while life lasts.
