About My Photography
I am a photographer based in Poole, Dorset, in the south of England.
I’m currently working on The Lower Parkstone Photographic Project, a ‘snapshot in time’ that is photographically documenting the businesses of Lower Parkstone/Ashley Cross in Poole, Dorset. The aim is to have an exhibition at the end of the Project, which will be the culmination of over 10 years’ work. During this time I’ve seen a huge amount of change as various businesses (and people) come and go, and some buildings have even been demolished and replaced.
2021 – Awarded RHS Silver-Gilt Medal – 6 photos displayed at the Saatchi Gallery, London
From 18th September – 3rd October 2021 a portfolio of six of my photographs will be on display at the Saatchi Gallery, in London. These are from my Poisonous Plants photographic project, which involved travelling over 2000 miles by car and on foot, through six UK counties.
I was driving home after photographing autumn colours in Dorset woodland, when I spotted a red poppy field. It’s mid-November, so this is an amazing find.
PORTAL is a large-scale art installation commissioned for Arts by the Sea Festival 2023. Standing 15m high on Bournemouth beach, it will be on display until 4th October.
The visual spectacle of Dorset opium poppy fields, with mesmerising hues ranging from white to very pale pink, is an annual part of the county’s rural landscape.

Poole Park’s ‘Garden of Memories and Reflection’ is currently a floral tapestry of reds, pinks, yellows, oranges, creams and whites, that proudly display their elegant petals to passersby.
In a secluded corner of the Park a heartwarming sight unfolds. Families of goslings, with fuzzy yellow feathers and tiny webbed feet, have ventured out into the world, guided by the watchful eyes of their parent geese. Meantime, Poole Park’s resident fox is on the prowl.
The 2023 Bournemouth and Poole Distinguished Gentleman’s Ride was one of the biggest rides in the UK, with 941 motorcycle riders taking part.
