Inspired by the natural world
A collection of images on the theme of “Nowhere”, the theme for the 2020 Cley Contemporary Art Exhibition. Hanging them at Cley will have to wait until next year, as the exhibition has been postponed due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Photographer -- Scientist -- Designer -- Climber
I'm a wildlife photographer and artist based in Sheffield, UK. I've always loved the natural world, fell in love with Africa, then discovered the wildlife on my doorstep. I spend a lot of time outdoors, whether it's taking pictures, hiking, biking, kayaking or climbing. I trained as a physicist and you'll see in my images that the scientific curiosity hasn't left me.
After a decade in the medical technology industry I swapped the desk-job for a more active life in the outdoors. I currently split my time between long term creative projects and coaching fitness, strength and mobility.
I live with my partner Alex, and Charlie (the most handsome black and white cat) in a home full of plants.
I'd love to hear from you if you're interested in collaborating on future projects, want to use my images or order prints, or just want to chat wildlife and photography.
