I’ve created a second calendar this year featuring landscapes, waterscapes and flocks of birds. These imagined landscapes are created from images taken in the woods and fields local to my village home in the Winterborne Valley of north Dorset. Calendars are 210mm square. The cover is printed on 250gsm Silk paper and the pages are … More 2021 Imagined Landscapes Calendar
I began this series of images in January, after visiting a starling murmuration at Blashford Lakes in Hampshire. It is created using multiple exposures, often combining ICM photography with static images. I started by combining images of the wetland habitat with images of the birds, but then the project expanded and I included textures, details … More Murmuration
Over the last decade I’ve been taking my camera to the river Stour, which runs through the nearby town of Blandford Forum, to capture images of the local gulls in flight. I’ve always loved birds and birdwatching and am fascinated by flight. Capturing the birds in slow motion using long hand held exposures transforms the … More Gulls in flight.
I’m frequently asked how I produce my ethereal botanical and nature photography, so I thought I would do my best to explain some of my process and why I am drawn to shoot in this style. I’m a self-taught photographer so please forgive me if I can’t find the right vocabulary at times in this … More Ethereal nature photography
The lockdown has meant spending a lot more time at home and as the sun has been shining I’ve spent the last few weeks experimenting more with wet cyanotype, lumens and anthotypes. So I thought I’d share some of the work I’ve created and a little bit about how each image is made. The chemicals … More Cameraless creativity.
I visited Ibsley near Blashford Lakes in Hampshire on Sunday with my dear friend Amanda to watch one of my favourite natural spectacles, a starling murmuration. We were treated to a breath taking display and the exhileration of small groups of birds flying just over our heads to join the large murmuration which was dancing … More Murmuration

A few years ago I started playing with cyanotype as I was looking for affordable ways to print my images. By making digital negatives on transparencies I could create printed work from my digital photography, and this process added another dimension to the original image. My love for the process grew and I have shared … More Cyanotypes
I am really excited to share that I will be having a month long exhibition at Dorset Wildlife Trust’s Kingcombe Center in May. It is part of the Get Dorset Buzzing campaign, which is raising awareness of the importance of wildlife gardening across Dorset to help wildlife and pollinators. I hope many of you … More Plants and Pollinators Exhibition.
