Along with being a technical director of a global building products company, specifically covering Northern Europe, I am a very keen amateur photographer,  based in Buxton, Derbyshire (UK) (although originally from Liverpool) and was born in March 1965. My passion for photography started in around 1985 at the ripe old age of 20 with a lovely little Olympus OM10 (albeit "I" and "it" had its problems). I have been very inconsistent with my dedication to photography due to work and family needs over the years but the journey continues as I develop my specialty area (or areas) now and I am trying to dedicate much more time to enjoy this much needed recreational hobby and fascination. From my shots in the numerous galleries above, you will see that I enjoy Wildlife and Landscape photography (due to the many shots in them), but I think my secret passion really lies in portraiture and I would also like to spend time capturing Streetscape in all its natural glory. I simply need to find the time to focus on developing my skills and focus in these areas, so whilst I do that, I hope you will continue to watch this space...
