I became interested in photography in my late teens and started photographing in 35mm. After a couple of years, I began working as an assistant to several advertising and editorial photographers and was also a member of the North Star artists’ co-operative in Brighton from 1994 until 2010 when I moved to Heathfield in East Sussex and created a darkroom at home.
I enjoy working on long-term projects based in the landscape and often focus on the history and narrative of individual places – I research areas thoroughly and then look for subtle signs of human interaction within these places and the natural world.
Walking with a camera, returning to favoured locations and observing change over time is an important part of my practice. Alongside my photographic work, I also work in nature conservation which helps inform and inspire my photography. I am interested in geography, ecology, archaeology, history, mapping and landscapes and draw upon these disciplines to inspire my work.
