About Me

People - Places - Events

  • I live in Slaithwaite, in the Colne valley, West Yorkshire. I have lived in Slaithwaite since 1991, choosing to settle here after working as a cruiseship photographer.

    I was born in 1963 in Southall but grew up from the age of six in Yorkshire and consider myself an adopted Yorkshire man inspite of my accent.

    After two years at Wakefield School of Art I studied Fine Art at Newcastle Polytechnic specializing in painting and photography. I worked for the Yorkshire Sculpture Park and Bretton Hall College before taking the opportunity to travel to parts I may never otherwise have reached as a photographer on board passenger ships. I no longer make my living solely from photography. I now divide my time between photography and audio visual work for Huddersfield University.
