I am a retired academic geologist / volcanologist.
My interest in photography was sparked at the age of 12 with my grandfather as my photographic mentor. Between 14-17 years of age I engaged in a project to photograph the demise of the steam locomotive on British Railways. Many of the images from the project are now scanned and printed as fine art prints.
When I arrived at Lancaster University in 1969, I joined the hiking club and began photographing the hill walking and climbing scene. This remained my main photographic subject area throughout my academic career in Geological Sciences.
As my photographic style developed, I began selling more and more images to climbing and hill walking magazines for cover and internal use.
I made the switch from analog to digital imaging in 2005 and at the same time I began to concentrate on wilderness landscape imaging. This has been my main focus since retiring in 2010.
