About The Photographer

It is a joy for me to live at the coast. Being so close to the sea is totally inspiring.

I love North and East Yorkshire and Northumberland is close to my heart too. I find this entire coastline to be very stimulating. It is rich in fascinating geology, beauty and drama.

Although I am surrounded by such awesome scenery, I usually find myself photographing much smaller subjects and areas of detail on the beach.

Rock formations, tidal sand patterns and pools of water often suggest imagery that I enjoy interpreting in an abstract way.

My use of colour is usually conceptual .This allows me to produce uniquely vibrant and intriguing abstract images from an otherwise familiar coastline.
