About

A photographer for 15 years, I am in the process of obtaining a Licentiateship Distinction in Photography from The Royal Photographic Society.
Based in Manchester and Salford North West England, both lend modern landscapes that still reach back in history to the Industrial revolution, The area of my life’s steps, gift a vision to capture images that I believe make a great photograph. I am a regular contributor to local media, where my images are used.

“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.” ― Ansel Adams

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.” ― Susan Sontag

“Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.” ― Marc Riboud

“Today everything exists to end in a photograph.” ― Susan Sontag
