UK Landscapes - Lake District
Self portrait on the summit of Bow Fell
I've been an enthusiast photographer since the mid 1980's having started out using my dad's Chinon CE-4S with it's 70-300mm zoom lens, taking photos at motocross events in my late teens. It wasn't until the late 1990's I started branching out into other areas like portraiture, studio still life, architectural and landscape photography. I even managed to do a wedding or two before deciding it wasn't for me. It was in 2007, during my first trip to Scotland that I became focused on (obsessed with) landscape photography and in particular, mountain landscape photography. The experience of driving through Rannoch Moor and Glencoe gave me so much inspiration I just knew this is what I wanted to be doing.
At over 400 miles from my home in Warwickshire, Scotland isn't exactly practical. The Lake District on the other hand, being a mere 200 miles away, is a little more local and has become my mountain landscape of choice. I generally head out at weekends, weather and family commitments permitting, in the hope of capturing unique images, usually in the early hours around sunrise, or sometimes at the end of the day when the sun's low in the sky.
This website is the showcase of my best work during those trips. Please enjoy your visit & return often.
