Born in Birmingham in 1972, I moved to the North East of England as a small child and have been settled in the area ever since. Having lived primarily in and around the dales of County Durham, I have worked at various jobs to support my love of photography. This has included working as a farm hand at the age of 15, to more recent work in both foundry and construction industries. Attuned to both the natural rhythms of the changing seasons as well as to the areas' industrial and landscape heritage, my work recognises the multifaceted nature of the North East and celebrates its diversity from land to sea. As a dedicated father, cyclist, and walker, I have found an affinity for dramatic landscapes within the North East, along with those that can be found near my parents' home in the Isle of Skye. An advocate of using little or no digital manipulation in my compositions, my work often depicts evocative, solitary scenes that appeal on a number of emotional levels with which all can find personal resonance. Whether they are pictures that feature sweeping skies, the desolate and barren, or capture the impact of swirling seasand crashing waves, my work demonstrates an abiding love of the brooding, natural scenes that are synonymous with the two regions in which I spend my time.
