I am an amateur Landscape photographer based in the UK. I have been serious about landscape photography for the last few year's and the hobby has become a healthy obsession. My interest in landscape really kick started during a trip to Cambodia where I fell in love with this genre of photography whilst capturing images for local charities. I have always had a camera in hand thanks to my father’s encouragement but this was perhaps the moment that really moved me. I love all forms of photography and have targeted an improvement in people and macro genre's for 2020. I have explored Patagonia amongst more closer to home locations and have a long list of landscape locations to visit including the Dolomites, Scotland and Eastern Europe. It's an absolute passion and the one thing in life that even when exhausted I have time for. My favourite locations to photograph are Shropshire and North Wales although I could quite happily live in Patagonia. I have been considered in a few competitions over the last year including: -British Photography Awards 2020 shortlist (Pets), 2020 Finalist - Siena International, 2020 LPOTY shortlist (watch this space), International Garden Photographer of the year - 3rd Place (Wildflower Landscapes), RHS 2020 Competition 3rd Place (All about plants), Honorable mentions in the ND, Chromatic and IPA Awards. My kit bag has too much in but at high level I use a Nikon D850, Nikon 70-200mm F4 lens, Tamron 24-70mm f2.8, Tamron 17-35mm f2.8 and Nikon 85mm f1.4. I use Lee Filters, a 3 Legged Thing Tripod, Lowepro bags and Hoya UV filters.
