Since picking up my Dad's ancient Zenith SLR camera on a family holiday about 20 years ago, I have loved taking photos. Back in those days everything was manual on the camera so I remember getting told to get a move on while taking a photo of my family and fiddling with all of the settings.

I started off on those holidays taking landscape shots and tried to avoid having people in the photos. My love of photography led me to take a college course and on to working in a portrait studio, and photographing weddings. I still got out and about in the countryside to continue photographing landscapes. But having a full time job, working for someone else didn't leave much time to develop the fine art side of my work.

So I decided to become self employed. I'm a wedding and portrait photographer but now I have the time to produce and sell fine art images and watercolour prints. I love both aspects of my job. Weddings are just so beautiful to be a part of and art is beautiful to look at.

I hope that you find something in my galleries that you'd either like to send to someone special as a card or gift, or that you think is special enough to have in your home.
