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.
You know you’re in the Devon hills when... the mud is red and plentiful and the fields are a patchwork of greens.
Another hike, a levada and eating limpets on my last night in Funchal.
Cloud forest, surf beaches, rocky cliffs and swimming in the Atlantic: photos of my day exploring the south-west and west of Madeira.
