Family Adventures
  • Family Adventures

  • Adventures are becoming more and more about shared experiences, the laughter, the jokes, the memories and the new things we do together. My childhood experiences we always about seeing new things, simple times together. I look back to exploring National Trust gardens, camping in Abersoch [...]

  • As part of Open Churches Week, the Church in my village is hosting an exhibition of local photographs both historic and modern. I have donated a number of small prints to the exhibition and very much luck forward to seeing some of you there.

The competition theme is 'The Colour Purple' and I can't wait to see the entries, this will be a fierce competition for sure. You can enter the competition here, closing date is the 27t[...]
  • Redbubble

  • Selling my personal work has been something I have rarely thought about, these images have been shot for pleasure and purely for creativity. With the majority of my images being commission work and a small selection available through Getty, I had not looked at my other portfolios in the same way. [...]

  • I have been invited by Photocrowd to judge a photography competition and I am super excited about it... excited because this is a wonderful opportunity to immerse myself in the art of others.

Happy New Year 2017
  • Happy New Year 2017

  • Happiest of Happy New Years, it's still January so I can say that! SO! Those resolutions I do every year... 2014... 2015... 2016... they have brought me sushi and a stark reminder of those things I am still to scared to do. I do not need to be reminded of my fears, only the plans I am to accompli[...]

  • My final post of the year, and I would like to thank you all for your valued support in all that I have achieved and still hope to achieve.

To Being Courageous
  • To Being Courageous

  • I love this month, it means a whole bunch of things to me. Primarily it's my wonderful mum's birthday and she truly is marvellous. She embodies everything that I aspire to be, most of all my mum is courageous. What is true courage? To feel the fear and do it anyway, whatever it may be. Courage[...]
It's Officially Autumn
  • It's Officially Autumn

  • Yes, yes, yes... it's the UK and autumn has technically begun. It's very different here on the coast, well different to the North West for sure, autumn feels to take a long time time to begin. Perhaps that's because I am impatient, it is after all my favourite season. I can't remember why autumn [...]
Writing a Bio
  • Writing a Bio

  • I've always been pretty open, so when I am asked a question I will answer it but the question 'can I have your bio?' ummmmm what, me? Seriously? Where do you even begin with that? So many questions! My normal answer is simple; ask me what you want to know. Perhaps that's a cop out, but it's that [...]
Summer Adventures
  • Summer Adventures

  • It's the summer holidays and this year we went on a road trip. My mum and stepdad are two very special people, hugely special not just because they are my parents but for the values they hold. We had a week packed with adventure and I'm still recovering! First stop Aldeburgh, this was my first visit[...]
My Inspiration
  • My Inspiration

  • Out of all the questions I am asked, the most frequent one is what inspires me. Life. Life is most inspirational. Having previously existed through a drought of inspiration, the pain of losing that spark and the dumbing down of senses but coming out from that heavy burden has created a thirst for se[...]
