Travel

I'm lucky enough to travel a lot but I also aim to understand a place in some depth. So I like to find out about the local history, sociology, wildlife and local arts. I prepare for a trip by looking up photos of the famous sights, they're usually a good guide both about the local visual interest and also a warning of what has already been done or over-done.
I try to use the tools of modern photojournalism and photography to communicate how I feel about a place. You’ll see that I have used Portrait, Street, Interior, Historical, Abstract, Landscape, Historical, Wildlife, Phone-camera and Selfie genres at different times for specific effects.

Shoreham Beach nature reserve - view towards Worthing

The vegetated shingle beach at Shoreham Beach in West Sussex is a rare habitat with good diversity of plants and animals which can survive in the salty winds and with a scarcity of fresh water. It is a protected nature reserve, there is now a boardwalk which protects the fragile vegetation from trampling. The Friends of Shoreham Beach are active in keeping the litter under control and monitoring the beach environment.
