Hello and Welcome, thanks for taking a look at my website!
My interest lies in wildlife and documentary photography but especially equine photography. I love to 'Tell the Story'.

I was brought up in Cornwall in a farming community, surrounded by National Trust Land and within a stones throw of the Cornish Coastline where the Atlantic waves rolled in on the stunning beaches. This is where my love of animals and nature was nurtured from a tender young age, and has remained with me to this day.

Graduating with a First Class B.A.(Hons) Photography degree from Coleg Sir Gar, West Wales School of Arts, Carmarthen, 2014.
I have been interested in photography for a long time and attended an evening course 10 years ago at Coleg Sir Gar. However, it was not until I was made redundant from my day job of the past 15 years that a positive move to enrolling on a full time degree course became a much sought after reality - A redundancy notice was my ticket to freedom!

So far I have had so many opportunities to widen my knowledge and gain experience, it has been amazing. Throughout the course of my work I have been able to visit several countries and have always taken an interest in the diverse cultures and landscapes presented to me. I have been lucky enough to visit South Africa twice in the last 18 months and photograph some of the fabulous wildlife that is there.

There is a big wide world out there, waiting to be discovered, new opportunities and adventures present themselves all the time, you just need to open your eyes, trust your heart, keep level headed and your finger on the shutter!
Why follow the path that is well worn by other people? Leave the path and make your very own adventure!
You never know what awaits you around the next corner.
