I'm a Wirral, Merseyside based photographer producing photography which is pictorial in style with a subject matter ranging from landscapes, architecture, people and flowers to digital infrared.
I bought my first camera in the digital age of 2004, a Sony F717 bridge camera, and this introduced me to the World of infrared photography. I've been hooked on this fine art medium ever since and shoot in wavelengths of invisible light from 590nm "Super colour" infrared through to 720nm standard infrared and 830nm pure infrared. These give me a wide range of options from false colour to monochrome images.
From the Sony F717 bridge camera I progressed to a Minolta 5D DSLR and then to Sony cameras. My main cameras are the mirrorless Sony A6400 for colour and A6000 camera which have been permanently converted to infrared.
Being self-taught in photography taking it up in my mid 50's, I joined Hoylake Photographic Society and I quickly learnt the art of photography from visiting professionals to the club giving their presentations and talks.
I sell prints of my photography at a small selection of Wirral fairs and prints can be bought through the Williamson Art Gallery shop in Oxton, Wirral.
In 2018 I won the National Trust Handbook Cover competition with "Dawn on Llyn Dinas" with the handbook going to over 5 million members. Inspired by Kathleen Clemons in the United States, my more recent work involves mixing flowers and textures together to produce a painterly effect.
