About me.....

Two of my great passions in life are travel and photography. I believe that travel broadens our view of the world. Experiencing other cultures, meeting people from other communities and other countries and seeing the beauty, and sometimes ugliness of the world drives me to capture my experiences through photography.

Through my photography I strive to document my own personal experiences, to capture scenes and events as I see them and to share with others the beauty and diversity of the world I've seen. As the images of other photographers have inspired me to explore the world, I hope my own contributions will inspire others to do the same.

I feel privileged to have visited some of the most inspiring countries this world has to offer including Myanmar (Burma), Mongolia, Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Bolivia to name but a few.
I keep my images simple and contemporary and use bright, vivid colours, interesting shapes and textures to bring my work to life.

Of late I've gone down the 'Adventure' route, participating the the Rickshaw Run 2008 and this summer I've assembled a team to tackle the Mongol Rally.

I hope you enjoy the website and reading the blog.
