I first picked up a camera whilst working in Saudi Arabia in the 1980s. The passion really developed when I started scuba diving and took photos underwater in the Red Sea for the first time.

Since then work has generally got in the way but over the last few years I have slowly been getting back into photography combining this with my other passions of walking and golf.

Now, having taken early retirement, I can once again devote more time to developing my skills and maybe making a living at the same time.

Living in Worcestershire gives easy access to the marvellous Malvern Hills which always provide inspiration in all weathers.

My love of travel ties in nicely with carrying a camera on regular trips to locations across the UK.
