I am originally from Manchester in England, but now live in Derbyshire in the heart of the beautiful Peak District, regarded as one of the most scenic areas of outstanding natural beauty in Great Britain. It's a great place to live for a photographer, but as you can see from my galleries I like to venture further afield occasionally!
I have been a photographer for over 30 years, and always remember the best piece of photographic advice I was given. Some years ago I worked with a very experienced landscape photographer and he said to me on one occasion 'you are looking but not seeing'. That has always stuck with me, and I try and remember it each time I look through the viewfinder.
