I first became interested in photography as a medium when I took several images (now lost) of the Dordogne and Loire valleys which to me seemed to breathe the essence of the scene I was trying to capture.
For me, photography is all about recreating in image the life force of the subject. It is not so much the subject matter as whether the viewer is able to experience the energy which was present at the moment the photograph was taken.
I hope that I achieve this in the images I have chosen to share on my Gallery page.  These images are available to purchase in a variety of formats, from postcard through to canvas print here.


All the content on this site comes from my own experiences and growing understanding – I would hesitate to use the word “wisdom” but perhaps a little wisdom has seeped in here and there to season my ramblings and offerings.  I hope you find something of interest to take away with you – whether food for thought, a smile and a lighter heart or a new idea – and for anyone who makes a purchase, thank you. Your decision to buy gives me pleasure that you found something of value to your life here.
