Hello and welcome to my website.

I've been a photographer and occasional journalist for more than 40 years and during that time my work has appeared in many magazines and websites covering waterways, wildlife and many other subjects. As well as blogging for a number of commercial clients I also publish a blog on this site with info on current or recent work.

I have recently been joined by my son Ashley who helps with a number of the technical aspects of the work carried out including done photography. Ashley has a particular interest in astro, landscape and travel photography as well as sharing a family interest in the waterways.

I am a regular contributor to TowPath Talk and I'm also the wildlife specialist on the Ramblers Association's website, this is in addition to supplying speculative and commissioned to a wide range of publishing clients.

A growing number of my stock images are available on this site or via my agent Alamy.

The content, and especially 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.  

For the record, I use only Nikon camera and lens equipment and have done throughout my photography career. Bags, tripods and monopods from Manfrotto and Apple computers running Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.

This is a Photodeck website hosted on Amazon AWS/S3 cloud.
