A travel photographer based in the UK, who loves to travel, sail and has a keen interest in aviation and cooking.


I was first lent a camera for a ski-ing trip in 1967 and have been taking photographs ever since. I joined the Royal Air Force in 1972 as an Engineering Officer and started travelling around the world, each time capturing images as I went. After retiring from the RAF in 1991 I continued my love of travelling and photography.

Since 2006 I have been improving my equipment and taken training to further understand my craft. I also invested in understanding digital manipulation and the hours I spent in the darkroom in the old wet film days was replaced with the creative skills needed for digital adjustment and manipulation.

In 2014 I was awarded a Licentiate from the Royal Photographic Society. I have also been fortunate enough to have had many of my images published in several books particularly in the field of military aviation.

I live in the Cotswolds in the UK and I have three passions in my life, travel, sailing and aviation. I travel extensively, capturing images as I go. My photographic business started on a local basis in remote Norfolk, England and then developed into a global presence with imagery covering Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania.
