I am originally from the UK, have lived in Denver, Colorado, for the last 25 years, and have been fortunate to travel extensively, visiting 39 countries and 45 US states so far. I love to try to capture interesting images of the world around us, including landscape, wildlife, cityscape and travel shots. I enjoy combining genres and in particular have a growing number of "animalscape" shots that combine wildlife and landscape elements in the same image. As a technologist in my day job, I like to push the boundaries with the latest technology developments to get new types of images. Recently I have shot a lot with "6K photo mode" on my Lumix G9 camera, which lets you capture 30 frames per second of 18 megapixel images, and this approach has delivered a lot of images that I couldn't have got with traditional approaches.
I once read an article that said that to improve your photography, you should spend as much money on education and training as you do on equipment, and I have tried to follow that guideline. I have done workshops and classes with a number of leading photographers, including a bald eagle trip to Utah and several birds in flight workshops with wildlife photographer Rob Palmer, a fall colors workshop in Telluride with renowned landscape photographer John Fielder, classroom workshops with Elia Locardi and Trey Ratcliff, and most recently a day's private workshop with Audubon Grand Prize winner Steve Mattheis in Grand Teton National Park. I learned things from all of them, as well as from the many local photographers and friends who I shoot with. And I mix in my own ideas and new techniques too.
I am inspired by living in the beautiful state of Colorado, which offers great opportunities for both landscape and wildlife photography. And I am inspired by traveling to interesting places around the world: some of my favorite destinations in recent years include Iceland, New Zealand, Brazil and visiting the famous snow monkeys of Jigokudani in Japan.
On the one hand I feel a lot of people make photography overly complex, and I take a good number of pictures in auto mode - it is really all about composition much of the time, especially for landscape. But when needed, I like to push the technical boundaries and in particular have been a pioneer with the use of 6K video to capture images that I wouldn't have been able to capture any other way.
In 2019 I won first prize in the landscape category at the highly competitive "Exploring the Light" photo show in Lone Tree, Colorado, with my image "Aspen leaves after a storm". This image was also an editor's choice at 500px.com, where it has received over 3000 likes.
In 2020 I was selected from hundreds of applicants to present a two month individual exhibition (together with my friend Fernando Boza) at the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Mesa Lab in Boulder, as part of their Community Art Program.
I had one image in the top 250 and 10 semi-finalist images in the 2019 international "Share the View" competition run by the Denver Audubon Society. I have had images selected for multiple other juried shows.
