I exist to make music and show the world through my eyes... I particularly like abstract landscapes and look to people like Eliot Porter, Fay Godwin & Ralph Gibson for my inspiration and to some extent, Ansel Adams. I like using my camera as an extension of my eyes and want people to look at the world in ways that they wouldn't do normally.
I am so inspired by the diversity of the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata where I live and the surrounding areas that I have set up a small company to run photography experiences in and around the area, sometimes combining them with other activities in collaboration with other like-minded companies & individuals. I am aiming to work at all levels of expertise and I have very much to offer those who would like to take part, as do all of those whom I am working with.
My mission is to offer the highest quality photography experiences whilst promoting a healthy respect for the surrounding environment and nature. This is something I’ve always cared about and along with the people that I share this respect of our world with, is very important to me – probably more so than earning a fortune through my work.
Most visitors flock to the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata during the summer months and whilst there is much to see and do, there is an ever-changing beauty at other times of the year also which I am looking to show people. People need to see that the Parque Natural de Cabo de Gata is a beautiful place all year round.
I believe that in sharing my love of the environment through what I do, I can inspire others and teach them to care about the world in which they live or the world that they visit for that matter.
I studied photography in Berkshire & London and have shown photographs in many exhibitions.
