I started serious photography in my early 20s when I got my first 35mm SLR camera. I soon began developing and printing my own photographs in my make-do darkroom (the kitchen). I was a member and Secretary of North Somerset Camera Club for some years. The high point of those years was having my photographs selected for the Royal Photographic Society's Annual Exhibition and the Bristol International Salon of Photography.

Now I have moved on to digital photography, and have discovered the wonders of Photoshop, which has opened up a whole new world of possibilities.

I have lived in Somerset all my life, and the landscapes and coastlines of Somerset and the South West have always been a source of inspiration to me. The ever-changing seasons and weather are a source of endless fascination, and provide a vast wealth of photo opportunities.

I hope you enjoy the photos!
