"We don't take photographs with our cameras, we take them with your hearts. We take them with our minds." - Arnold Newman
From an early age I had a fascination with photography. Although not the beauty of the world around us but more people and daily life.
As a teenager I was interested in railways and transport. I would travel around the UK taking photos of trains, buses, locomotives and railway life. I was fascinated with the way transport and its infrastructure worked....then I grew up, met a girl who became my soul mate. We got married and had two amazing children.
I'm from Wales originally, for me one of the most beautiful countries on our planet. Growing up in a small town on the Clwyd coastline nestled between the mountains and the Irish Sea. My formative years were filled with cold snowy winters and warm sunny summers. On a clear day from the mountain above the town you felt as though you could see across the roof of Wales and the Irish Sea to The Isle of Man, Scotland and the Lake District. The views were amazing and this is where my love of the Landscape has come from. Childhood trips through Snowdonia, Llyn Peninsula and Anglesey were inspiring and still are to this day.
When out taking photos light is the major element for me. If there's light, there is an image to be made. Sunrise on a beach is one of my favourite places to be with the camera. The first glimpse of colour after the darkness of a long Winter's night is magical. The anticipation of the suns arrival on the horizon signals the new day and life carries on.
Whether it's a mountain top looking down a valley, walking along a forest track or on the shoreline listening to the waves . Just being out with nature is the most natural calming medicine you can take.
I just try and capture what I see the best I can, I hope you enjoy the images I have captured through the lens of my camera.
