Bio / Statement

“For some time now it has seemed to me that the two questions we should ask of any strong landscape are these: firstly, what do I know when I am in this place that I can know nowhere else? And then, vainly, what does this place know of me that I cannot know of myself?”
Robert MacFarlane

I have been a freelance photographer for just over 10 years. Working for a variety of clients including M&S and Coca Cola, as well as a number of publications means consistently practicing and demonstrating a broad range of photography techniques and skills.

I am internationally exhibited, with prints held in both private and public collections including the Royal Photographic Society’s permanent collection. I have also been nominated for many awards including: Winner of Sheffield Photographic Open 2012, Renaissance Photography Awards 2012 finalist, Lumen Digital Arts Prize 2012 finalist and shortlisted for the Vantage Art Prize 2013 and shortlisted for International Garden Photographer of the Year and British Wildlife Photographer of the Year (2015).

I have been involved in delivering workshops and participating in education programmes since completing my degree in Photography and Digital Imaging in 2003.

In 2014 I founded Walking Photographer Tours, a venture that encourages people to get inspired outdoors and take better photos. Since then I’ve led over 300 people on various photo walks in rural and urban areas, as well as led a number of public walks for institutions like the Canal and River Trust. It’s been a great success and I just love leading the walks and workshops.
