Heading to the North West
  • Heading to the North West

  • We travel back to the North West three or four times a year to visit family. I was born in Rochdale. I spent my early childhood in Smithy Bridge, a village by Rochdale Canal close to Hollingworth Lake. With every visit, the familiarity lessens, I feel like I am seeing the places for the first time.[...]
Winter on the Coast
  • Winter on the Coast

  • Living on the coast during winter is something that summer trips to the seaside will never prepare you for, especially on the north sea. There is something absolutely beautiful about the solitude of the coast in winter. I enjoy the vibrancy that comes with summer tourism, meeting new peo[...]
  • Food

  • I absolutely have to state that I have no ambition to become a food photographer. I love food, I love the colour and I love the texture but I especially enjoy the fact that as my son has said 'if it looks bad then I don't want to eat it'.

  • 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. When I was told the competition theme is 'The letter S' my mind started instantly buzzing with ides for b[...]
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[...]
