I’m a restless soul with an inquisitive nature and (sometimes) overactive mind. I find it hard to believe that I’m now in my seventh decade, but I show no signs of slowing down. In fact, I’m more keen than ever to try new experiences and I’m told that my favourite phrase seems to be “What could possibly go wrong?”

Between 1976 and 2018 I worked in the high tech sector as as an executive, mentor and board advisor around the world. In 2018 I scaled that back to focus much more on my main interest of  photography. I’ve been fortunate to travel to some amazing places which have inspired me to try to capture the essence of the place. 

There’s nothing better than being outside enjoying the beauty of the natural world around us. That’s why I love capturing and sharing scenes that others will enjoy. In March 2019 we moved back to my homeland of Wales, and now live in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. This place is so full of amazing scenery that I feel like a kid in a sweet shop … spoilt for choice!

Although I’m mainly self-taught, I’m also constantly trying to improve my practice through ongoing education and by learning from other photographers. 

If you’d like to share experiences, or learn more about what I’m up to please connect with me or send a message.
