Im a keen photographer based in Newport Pagnell, Buckinghamshire. The photo over there is a selfie that i took using my phone as a trigger for the light, and achieved a Silver award with The Guild Of Photographers.
I started my photography journey back in September 2011 at the tender age of 48 when i embarked on an intensive 3 month course with The Open University and since then i've been hooked.
I shoot many genres but my main passion is aviation and wildlife.
I am a member of The Guild Of Photographers and have won many awards for my images with them. My last awards was being their 'Photographer Of The Year' for 2018, along with the 'All Round Photographer of The Year' for 2018 and winner of the Open catagory for 2018. I was also their overall 'Photographer Of The Year' for 2016 and 2017 and again winning their Open catagory. These awards are based on how images scored during the period of the year, taking your best 8 months in to account. It's a tough and fiercely competitive competition so I'm extremely proud to have been awarded these titles.
I also gained my Master Craftsman qualification with The Guild Of Photographers in February 2019, this is where i had to submit a printed panel of 24 images to the Guilds judges for their consideration.
It had to follow a theme so i chose aviation, and the images had to work together as a panel as opposed to be 24 individual images, this was the part that was quite difficult.
After my awards in 2018 it was a natural progression to become a Panel Member with The Guild, so i now get to judge images in the competition that i used to enter and in 2024 I am still doing that and enjoy seeing all the members incredible work.
I hope you enjoy my work.
