Born in Nottingham in 1956,
B.A. Hons Fine Art (Photography) Sheffield School of Art and Design 1975-78,
Worked as a freelance Press photographer and also in arts administration after leaving art college, but career took a turn when I took up model making! Yes, I now build highly detailed model cars for collectors around the world but this means I can now think about, read about, explore, and make photographs again in the same creative and self-challenging way when I started in photography. It may be a cliché but I am more interested in describing the essence of a place rather than simply recording the place in my landscape work, and this goes back to my early teachers and influences, but hopefully I have also moved forward in the meantime.
I live in the Peak District National Park, so that is one box ticked in the hunt for evocative landscape.
