Hello and welcome to my website.

I've been a freelance photographer and journalist for more years that I care to remember. I hold the distinction of LRPS from the Royal Photographic Society and am a member of the NUJ.  My work has appeared in many magazines and websites covering the waterways and wildlife subjects. I also publish a blog on this site as well as blogging for commercial clients.

Currently I am the wildlife specialist blogger for the Ramblers Association and a regular contributor of boat reviews and other related articles for TowPath Talk. I also produce features and blog posts for TowPath Talk as well as speculative and commissioned work for commercial and publishing clients. I'm also producing a number of websites for commercial clients, something I've done for many years.

A growing number of my images are available on this site or via my agents, Alamy and Adobe Stock.

All the images on this website are copyright but are available for either publication or as prints subject to payment of the required fee. Full details are available by clicking on the 'buy' option with each image.
