When did you start photography?
I purchased my first camera in 1972 and that was it, I have been hooked ever since.
How important is photography for you?
Extremely important to the point that I look at the world in terms of potential images, I just can't help mentally framing things.
Your favourite location?
Embleton Bay – Such a magical location and the home of the spectacular Dunstanburgh Castle. I love crawling around the rocks and beach looking for a unique perspective on a much photographed subject – and it is close to where I live.
Your favourite past or present photographer?
I suspect like many Landscape Photographers I was first hooked by Ansel Adams.
Your future photographic plans?
I am always searching for the perfect picture, wherever it may be. I am always striving to improve. In terms of locations I hope to spend some time next year exploring the far North of Scotland. I did the Munros many years ago and vowed to return up there with a camera.
What advice would you give to a younger you about photography?
Photograph things that inspire you. Be yourself, don't try to imitate anyone else. If you are trying to make a living from landscape photography, then try to develop a unique style, something to make you stand out from the crowd, especially important today in such a competitive market.
