I have been keen on photography since acquiring a Brownie 127 at the age of about 8 or 9 years. Work largely restricted my time for photography to holidays and it is only in the last few years since giving up the day job that I have been able to devote more time to it.

I joined Nottingham and Notts Photographic Society in early 2007 and have been helped enormously by many of the members since then; it would be invidious to single out individual members for mention. I feel particularly privileged to have served as President of the Society, an office which I held for two years until June 2012.

My photographic interests are eclectic but perhaps the area that I find most stimulating and perhaps most challenging is landscape photography. I have a number of photographic heroes including Joe Cornish, David Noton, Colin Prior, David Ward and on a more personal level, Pete Bridgwood. I have been privileged to go on several of Doug Chinnery’s workshops from which I have benefited hugely.

I was especially pleased this year to have had an entry accepted in the Landscape Photographer of the Year – the image is shown on this site.
