I now have a permanent photographic exhibition at 'The Pod' art gallery in Bishop Auckland market square. I will have a number of large photographic canvases on display, with a few which have never being seen before, and a selection of mounted prints. Please pop along if you get the chance and let me know what you think.


If you need to view any images at other locations, I have 12 large framed prints, and a selection of mounted prints on display (for sale) in Lewis & Cooper's tea room in Northallerton, so if your in need of a good cuppa and a bite to eat, do yourself a favour and have a look upstairs. I also have a selection of mounted prints available at Durham City Studios, Claypath, Durham City.

The galleries below are best viewed in 'Slideshow' mode, with a dark grey background, which is accessed via the screen page. Please feel free to comment on the images.

I was born and raised in Manchester, UK. before moving to Durham in 1996. I am self taught and have been taking photographs since 2005, with a leaning to HDR (High Dynamic Range) images since 2007. I have a passion for Landscapes and believe that the HDR process brings out depth, textures, light and colours, which are lost in the single image technique. I try to portray the image as seen by myself, and not the 'cartoon effect' which some HDR images can have.

I own a HP 44 inch printer using only HP inks. I capture, print, mount and frame all my own images. Prints can be supplied of any image within this website, and can be supplied plain, mounted, framed or on canvas. All canvases are supplied with a clear, specially produced photographic varnish, so that they can be cleaned. I also have a vast amount of images not displayed on this website, which can also be supplied as above. I am also available to undertake any commission's that you may require. Please feel free to contact me for details.

I only use quality products and matierials, so that my images, which are in 'Limited Editions' of 150 or 250, appear better on your wall than they do on your monitor. Prices start at £7.50 for an A4 print, (all images), £15.00 for A3, and £25.00 for A2. Mounted prints are slightly more, and framed, slightly more again. An A2 print, mounted and framed will cost £75.00,(frame size 52cm. x 74cm.) Full refunds, or if prefered, exchange images, will be given if you are not fully satisfied with your purchase. Postage will have to be added to the above prices, unless you live in the Durham area, where I will deliver them free of charge, and in person.

Got a WOW from husband today when I pulled out the print of Fountains Abbey and he's a man of few words so I knew that my purchase was a good one. Wish I'd had more cash on me..I could have bought at least 3 more! Will try to catch up with you at another event. Would be great if you had a facebook page so we could like and follow you :-)

We have visited the gallery in Bishop Auckland today and love your landscape shots. We purchased the black and white shot of Seaham Harbour mouth for my father- in-law who grew up there as a lad and ventured through that harbour mouth in a boat many times. He loves it, shed a few emotional tears and is now reminiscing tales of when he was a lad.
Thank you
We met on the 199 steps leading up to Whitby Abbey at sunset in February, while waiting to photograph a sunset, and I just wanted to say how impressed I am with many of your beautiful landscape images. Great compositions and use of light.

Do you have any photographs of Darlington?
Had two of your beautiful photographs bought as a gift though it was difficult to choose only two! Hope to buy more in future. Absolutely stunning pictures.
