I am a Cumbrian born photographic artist based in Manchester. My main fascination with the world is nature and landscape, this perhaps stems from a rural upbringing. My experience of photography started not long before I applied for my degree, after traveling for 2 years I found myself in possession of a camera and became absorbed in freezing slices of time. It was at this point I started to see the potential of making images and the power they can hold. However, I knew little of how to make images that spoke to people and longed to understand the technicality of crafting meaning through a photograph.
Over the past 3 years I have made a variety of different photographic work and more recently film but have found myself returning to my roots of nature. However, throughout all of my projects the concept is the key and having a strong idea, grounds all of my work. Though this experience I have gained the ability to be a powerful visual communicator. However, there is always more to learn and like most photographers’ perfection is always just out of reach. Over the next few years I hope to continue to learn, grow and communicate through my images.
