It was during my college days where photography and my love of the darkroom really started to take hold. Having the time at college to experiment and learn the fundamentals of photography really lit the passion inside me to pursue this creative outlet. I bought a Pentax ME Super with a 50mm lens from a family friend who was an avid photographer and still have it in my collection though the lens sits on my Olympus PEN a lot more often nowadays.
I continued to work with photography for the next few years during my time studying design at university using photography to communicate ideas within projects. Since 1999 I have worked as a graphic designer for a number of successful design agencies where I gained valuable experience in many aspects of visual communication. In 2013 I stepped away from the security of a solid 9-5 into the word of freelance and haven't looked back since.
I now pursue design and photography with equal measure and passion in my everyday workload. My love of the mountains has grown to an addiction in the last 5 years and I spend as much time as possible with my camera in sometimes hostile conditions chasing light and fleeting moments of beauty. Trying to capture the perfect image that encompasses the landscape environment has become a real obsession.
I am also a co-operative member of Stocksy United where my images can be licensed for commercial use.
Thank you for taking the time to stop by and have a read, I hope you enjoy my work as much as I enjoy capturing it.
