Growing up by the coast it wouldn’t be a surprise to say I was drawn to the sea and most of my early photographs were seascapes. I also had an interest in rugged landscapes, peaks and mountain scenes, unfortunately you don’t get many of them in Kent. At the time I thought the best of those types of landscapes could only be found in the far North of the country, 12 or more hours driving wasn’t that appealing, then one year we booked a last minute holiday in the Peak District, that holiday would change my life.
I was hooked from my first visit everything I was looking for in my landscapes was here, though not on my doorstep it was close enough. In the many times I have been back I have 3 favourite locations, Derwent Edge, Kinder Scout and first place I ever visited Stanage Edge, I could spend my whole lifetime going back to these amazing areas and always find something new to photograph.
