I am a landscape photographer based in the UK. I exclusively shoot the natural and rural landscape, inspired by my childhood experiences of Mid Wales.
Growing up as I did, a few miles from the source of the Wye and the Severn, I have always had a liking for the Mid Wales landscape with its changing light and weather conditions. In many places, the area retains something of a sense of wilderness—particularly in the vast uplands of Elenydd and Pumlumon, little of which have changed in the last 2000 years.
Although I have travelled further afield in recent years, the Mid Wales landscape remains a source of inspiration for me. In my photography I often find myself attracted to the idea of edges—the edges of weather systems, the edges of daylight or the very edges of the landscape itself. I love the drama that comes at these transitions, particularly on the western extremes of Britain where I tend to concentrate my work. It is perhaps interesting that these lands form another edge—the northwest edge of Europe, home to the oldest surviving European languages and steeped in Celtic influences and traditions long since vanished elsewhere. Battered by Atlantic storms and capricious weather, they are often challenging to photograph but I find this part of their allure. Any disappointments are simply a trade-off for the privilege of experiencing these wild and remote places in beautiful light.
