” Creating images comes from within “
The Start of Becoming a digital nomad
Photography for me is an art form. It is about creating an image that is pleasing to the eye or conveys a feeling. It’s been a significant part of my life for over 35 years. Most of my time is spent travelling to various parts to cover stories, events and to increase my stock image library.
In order to truly understand something I have to be immersed within the subject I am covering. Over the years I have developed the ability to cover a range of disciplines within photography which has helped me have a greater understanding of colour, light, and the delicate balances needed to make a good image great !
Editorial Photography as part of my portfolio because I really do enjoy covering events of all shapes and sizes, diversity too for that matter. To have had the opportunity to go to university to become a journalist all those years ago is something that I deeply regret. I can however, get some consolation that I still ended up doing what I love.
Being in the right place at the right time to capture the perfect image is one thing, add in a narrative to accompany that image and you have an editorial work of art !
Great images with a compelling story behind them is truly priceless !!

Adventure photography has always captivated my imagination and given me great inspiration for who I am today. I have always been the adventurist. My own adventures are nowadays more closer to home but that doesn’t make them any less special, it somehow makes you appreciate what you have more. It also makes you think about assignments and projects so that you can deliver great content with superb images.
Blogging my way As I travel
Kayaking, Bikepacking, Outdoor Adventure and so much more
Kayaking for is one of the most disciplined outdoor activities to do. It’s even harder to try and capture an image from one. For a few months of 2017 I took to the Welsh coast to take photographs of places that few have seen, amazing beaches and coves that unless you arrive by boat or other vessel you would never know they were there. An incredible experience and some great and unique images. Dolphin watching from a sea kayak is a truly humbling experience. 2018 will see further exploits down on the coast and the prints will be available in limited edition format only.
Cycling and kayaking have become almost an everyday activity to go along with bike packing, hiking and wild camping. A combination of these activities makes me a better person with an understanding of the environment. It gives great content and I get to meet people from all walks of life.

Taking stock images gives me the chance to experience new and exiting challenges that sometimes take you out of your comfort zone. Some may find this daunting. I actually enjoy the challenge and pressure of delivering the right image at the right time. An unmissable and incredible experience. My own library of some 15,000 pictures has a whole host of images covering a wide range of subjects. If you are a publisher, graphic designer, website builder or you just need that perfect image then please drop me an EMAIL to discuss your requirements.
Photography is all about light. It has considerable effect on the subject and of course the outcome of the final image. Where possible I like to use only natural light, so you won’t see me lugging around a truck load of lighting. It interferes with what I try to achieve and that is a natural photograph that captures the image perfectly without being saturated by unnatural lighting effects.
I have documented my travels and have produced various photobooks and prints along the way. Due to my extensive travels I know of many locations for that specific requirement some of our clients have when they have that image in mind. Limited Edition prints will be going to press sometime in 2018 with an online store for easier ordering sometime thereafter. For now the blog is my focal point, who knows quite where that will lead.
" Photography runs through my veins, the outdoors at the forefront of my mind, the environment is in my heart "
