About the Photographer

This section describes my interests, inspirations and approach to photography.
I am based in the small village of Huttons Ambo in the Howardian Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) near Malton, North Yorkshire.

I have had an interest in photography for as long as I can remember and have had a camera of some sort since I was about 10. Back in 2003, I decided to take photography more seriously and bought a second-hand, fully manual, medium format camera (along with tripod and very basic light meter!). I opted for a twin-lens Mamiya C330 - as I was attracted to the unfamiliar square 6cm x 6cm image format. Using this camera forced me to slow down and consider the composition, depth of field and shutter speed - rather than just taking a quick "snap". This approach has certainly paid off in terms of image quality. I have since bought a Mamiya RB67 - another medium format camera, but with a 6cm x 7cm film size and, more recently, a Pentax K-1 full-frame digital SLR which I am really enjoying using and which produces some fantastic results.

My main specialism is in landscape natural abstract photography but I enjoy any form of photography. The majority of images on this site are taken on Fuji Velvia 50 transparency film - using either the twin lens Mamiya C330 camera, Mamiya RB67, or a Minolta 7000 35mm SLR. A growing number of images produced using my Pentax K-1 are also being added.

Most of the images on this site are taken in North Yorkshire - either in the Howardian Hills AONB, the North York Moors or on the Yorkshire Heritage Coast but are a few shots from further afield.
