From a fine art family of artists & art-lecturers, Glyn drew & painted before taking a Fine-art Foundation Course at Falmouth School of Art, then an Honours Degree in Photography at University of Westminster. He started freelancing in 1987 shooting commercial, industrial & portrait work for national clients but he always retained a love of photographing wild places.
His love of landscape & solitude; the drama of light & weather over the terrain is a spiritual inspiration. Its rapid changes & the variety of changing impressions leaves him ecstatic, especially when alone. "It’s like nature is giving something up of itself to me personally, at that precise moment for no one else will ever see the exact same interplay of light over land unless standing at precisely my location. I feel so honoured & humbled by wild landscape & the elements that I have a need to share my excitement in the of immaculately crafted compositions, portraying as vividly as possible what I’d experienced"
