From the Edge of Darkness

From the Edge of Darkness

Are you looking into the depths of the forest, or trapped inside the woods looking out? I like the way negatives play with our perception of location and transform the dark interior of a forestry plantation into a ghostly but sometimes enticing light. But even once you know that these images are negative your mind is telling you that the view is normal, and in many of these images the manipulat

Small Worlds

Small Worlds

Signs of life on an alien planet? Aerial photography of a vast wild landscape? Rivers, lakes, forests and volcanic craters? Looking down from high on to another world these landscapes are not at first what they seem. I am constantly looking for more abstract worlds to photograph and different ways of representing the beauty of nature in the environment where I live. In the same way that we may

Into The Darkness

Into The Darkness

I've driven past this forest every day for over a decade without giving it a second glance, but then one day I wondered what it would be like inside. At first I only explored the fringes of the forest, apprehensive of the seemingly impenetrable darkness within which there surely could be nothing of interest. But eventually I plucked up the courage to step inside, alone. 

I soon discove

Abandoned Shopping Trolleys

Abandoned Shopping Trolleys

An homage to thoughtless and lazy people. A lot of these are just a short walk from where they belong and you wonder why people couldn't make it that far, others are beyond salvage. An ongoing project which I hope will become harder and harder to add to as people become more determined to get their £1 coin back!

Unseen Beacons

Unseen Beacons

When out in the landscape it is easy to overlook the mundane and the ugly and just focus on the pretty view, but these are all part of the environment in which we live and often tell a more interesting story than the ubiquitous oversaturated sunset.

In this ongoing project I am trying to capture views of the Brecon Beacons that are edited out of most landscape imagery, and show more of

Head in the Clouds

Head in the Clouds

As a landscape photographer I am fascinated by clouds, both for their weather giving properties and the infinite variety in shapes, patterns and textures they add to the sky. For some time now I have been photographing the sky on its own, with no added landscape features, whenever I visit a location. Most of the time these images never make it further than the memory card, and sometimes they do

Pavement Studies

Pavement Studies

An exploration of the shapes, colours and textures of the limestone pavement area around Ystradfellte. Limestone pavement has always fascinated me, but I find it hard to capture the textures effectively in a single image so each of these pictures is a composite multiple exposure of at least 5 images. Currently just exploratory, this series may be developed further.

Moel Penderyn

Moel Penderyn

I strongly believe that only when I am truly familiar with a location can I hope to produce images that are more than just skin deep. These images represent a selection from my walks around the nearby hill of Moel Penderyn - an ongoing process which I hope will result in a representative set of images of this part of the Brecon Beacons.

River Tawe

River Tawe

The River Tawe is Swansea's main river, giving rise to the Welsh name for the City - Abertawe (literally the mouth of the Tawe).

These images take a documentary approach to capturing the route of the entire river from it's source in the Black Mountains to its emergence in the Bristol Channel - the river's surface appearing in all but the first image. They aim to capture the significant
