About

I live in the beautiful countryside of South Devon in England.

Photography has been a passion of mine for many years, I enjoy all types of photography but my main interest is Steam Railway photography.

I got my first camera when I was 14 years old, this was a second hand Zenit-E with a 50 mm lens. I soon progressed to an Olympus OM10 which I used for a couple of years. Since the early 1990’s I have been a Canon user. My first auto-focus camera was the Canon EOS 650, from there I went to the EOS 5 and then to the EOS 3. My first digital camera was the Canon 350D, then the 40D which I kept for a few years before upgrading to the 7D. I have since upgraded to the excellent full frame 5D mkIII.

I am very lucky to have two great Heritage Railways on my door step, The South Devon Railway and the Dartmouth Steam Railway where both have provided me with many great days out.

I hold a current South Devon Railway Line side and Personal Track Safety Permit which gives me the option of getting that exclusive photograph that is sometimes not possible from a public place.

Over the years I have had some of my work published in a number of nationwide magazines and local newspapers such as:

Railways Illustrated
Heritage Railways
Traction
South Devon Railway Bulliver
Totnes Times
Totnes News
South Devon Herald Express

I have even sold a few photographs to railway enthuiasits.
