"Although I spend much of my time exploring the varied landscapes of the North West UK, I have never set out with the deliberate objective of documenting them through a camera lens. Nor have I sought to portray them as idyllic, dramatic or pastoral; though one could well apply such adjectives to these environments. What I do seek to convey in my landscape photography is a sense of the natural spirit and elemental nature of these places, their unique feeling of presence that goes beyond a sense of place and provides a fleeting glimpse of something other. In many ways each picture is a meditation and I hope some element of that spirituality is transmitted as you view my photography.
Many of my images are captured at first light and often in the early months of the year when the soft, low sun has an evocative and ethereal quality. My photographic techniques are entirely dependent on the available light and the actuality of the landscape. I do not seek to ‘re-enchant the land’ and the images you see are as I found them. Serendipity is integral to my work and as such the number of pictures I take and release as limited edition prints are infrequent and in many ways self-selecting."
