Hello, and thanks for visiting my website.
This page contains information about me and my photography. There's also a Guest book at the bottom of the page.
I like to take photographs and share them with others so I hope you find something here that you like.
I live in Huddersfield, West Yorkshire, in the beautiful north of England.
I've been taking photographs for more than 30 years, starting on film and progressing to the inevitable world of digital imaging.
I could tell you about the cameras I use but I don't believe the camera makes the photographer - it's just a tool for capturing the user's vision.
Being able to 'see' the picture you want to capture is the key skill; what to leave out as much as what to include in the frame. Using the camera to capture that picture is secondary.
However, as I saw mentioned by another photographer recently, it is also important to be in the right place at the right time and not mess it up too badly when you take the picture.
I photograph anything that catches my eye, from landscapes to buildings, from flowers to snails, from doorknobs to drainpipes.
I don't take many 'people' pictures as I've found that most people (like me) don't like being photographed. I've photographed a few weddings over recent years for friends and family, plus other occasions such as children's birthday parties.<
Have a look at my galleries and see if there's anything you like. If you want to add a message to the Guest book or ask me a question, please send me an email message.
The pictures on this page were taken in Huddersfield, within a few miles of my home. See the Yorkshire gallery for larger versions and for more pictures of our fine county.
NEW: I've added a page of links (More pictures) to some of my other photographs elsewhere on the web and a page of Links to other photography or related sites that I find interesting and inspiring.

I particularly love the Station Cafe pic in the Yorkshire section.
Good luck with the site.

A Fan wrote on 31 October 2010: Blimey! Your photos are just amazing. You have such an eye (maybe even two eyes)! They are extraordinary - not a word I use lightly. Well done, mister. The only ones I can't relate to are the slugs & snails and people. The other stuff - especially flowers and landscapes - are wonderful.
Harris Johnson, of Greensboro, North Carolina, wrote on 12 March 2011: Wonderful work. I hope you have made arrangements for the preservation of yours photographs so that they are not lost to future generations.
