Founder, Photographer & Writer

  • My love of travel was sparked by my first trip to France when I was 12 with the local youth club – I organised their next four trips to Europe
  • I cut my travelling teeth visiting the old USSR and interrailing through Eastern Europe in the early nineties
  • Spent over a year backpacking through the Middle East & Caucasus, taking in Iran, Turkey, Syria, Lebanon, Georgia & Pakistan
  • Have been a professional photographer for over 20 years
  • Self taught on medium format and old film cameras.
  • I was Commissioning Editor & Art Director for the Visit Wales tourism body for over 15 years.
  • I love getting up at crazy hours like 2am to pack my lunch, catch 2 buses, a train and walk 10km up a mountain just to capture that shot.
  • I studied History and French at Manchester University while moonlighting as a music journalist.
  • I have always been drawn to punk-inspired underground music, and am also a huge fan of reggae, early electronic and early 1970s German music
  • When I’m not out taking photos I will most likely be in the kitchen or playing dinosaurs or Fireman Sam with my young son
