About Me

I’m a multi-award winning landscape and wildlife professional photographer based in Pembroke. I’ve lived and grown up in Pembrokeshire my whole life and being the only designated coastal national park in Britain, it’s a pretty special place to live and work! My main interests in photography lie with landscapes & wildlife. From the elusive and wildest of animals and birds, to the rugged glorious coast and inland countryside, I love it all. I’ve always had an interest in the natural world and together with my brother’s having cameras when I was young, definitely gave me the bug to capture anything and everything. So with photography in my blood from a young age, it was nice to progress with the technology over the years and to welcome the change from film cameras to digital. After leaving college and pursuing photography as part time venture alongside my career as a 3D artist & designer. I made the plunge in 2010 which saw me going full time starting my own photography business. It’s been an amazing journey so far, going from strength to strength over the last five years; I’ve had a great time and bagged some national accolades along the way.

Such highlights have multiple magazine covers and working with some big clients on commissions. Also regularly featuring in national photography competitions with highly commended images in BWPA, IGPOTY and also the big one of winning the award of Landscape Photographer of the Year 2014 in the National Photography Awards last year.  I work every month with many national publications, magazines and newspapers; be it image usage, feature writing and guides or tutorials on specific aspects to photography. I also run photographic workshops locally and abroad including landscape, wildlife and astro-photography tuition. Find out more about these here on my Workshops page.

I’ve been photographing wildlife and landscapes for a number of years now and over that time I’ve gained a lot of knowledge; the approach, technical side and how to implement it all into making an interesting and compelling image. My aim from the outset is to always try to capture a stunning, well composed and striking image. Always trying something different, I strive for my images to captivate and immerse the viewer. I often get asked what my style of landscape photography is and it’s something that’s evolved with my work along the way, but also a benchmark I try to stick to with every image I create. I’m a big believer in doing most of the work in camera with the use of subtle filters; more time out with the camera and not much work in the digital darkroom. I always like keeping colours true to life, capturing the scale and raw essence of a scene, truly involving the viewer into wanting to be there rather than, “That’s a nice photo”. I also love including any kind of motion in my images; be it cloud, foliage or water movement, so always tend to slow the shutter down with my landscape images to give them a more natural and wild appearance.

Over the last couple of years I’ve also been working with Welsh publisher Graffeg on my Pembrokeshire & Wildlife calendars, selling out every year. Together with note cards too, I have also authored a book titled Puffins and recently released a co-produced book, Wilder Wales with author Julian Rollins. This saw us travelling all over Wales in 2013 through to 2014, covering different species and locations month by month, in a celebration of some of the best places to visit over a year in Wales. This two hundred page coffee table book features all of my images throughout and to see it finally produced after working on it for over a year, was a very proud achievement on my photographic journey so far. It’s been selling so well, we’ve already started planning a second version! Also I’ve currently started work on another book with publisher FotoVue out next summer (2016), which will be a Landscape Photographer’s guide to the very best locations in South Wales.

I have also created a Blog, it features more information about my images, how I captured them and also some other shots that might not make it to my online shop.

Thanks for visting my site and I hope you enjoy my images
