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.

I also specialise in botanical photography, music photography and editorial photography, working mostly across Dorset and the south coast.

We are lucky in Dorset because we have what is possibly the best site for early spider-orchids in the UK. Ophrys sphegodes is also the first orchid to flower each year, heralding the start of the ‘orchid season.’ This year, I also found a woodcock orchid x Fly orchid hybrid, growing on a steep, Dorset hillside.

Therfield Heath Pasqueflowers 2022

Therfield Heath is renowned for its abundant colony of pasqueflowers and people travel from far and wide (like I did!) to see this annual Easter-tide spectacle. This really is the best place for ‘pasqueflower action’ in the UK!
