I trained as a professional photographer at the Berkshire College of Art & Design in Reading in the late 80’s. After qualifying I worked in photographic studios based in Slough and Harrow before becoming a Freelance Photographer undertaking a mix of commercial and social photography.
After a 5-year career I felt a calling to ministry in the Church of England where I am now a Vicar looking after 7 rural parishes in Oxfordshire. However, my love of art and photography has never died and in 2002 I was awarded my Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society [LRPS] and I continue to sell images through agencies such as ALAMY.
I now spend much of my free time visiting and photographing coastal regions of the UK particularly Devon and Cornwall as well as the cities of Bath and Oxford, where I am also a Canon of Christ Church Cathedral. I hope this site will enable people with a passion for photography to be able to view my work as well as buy photographs for their own use at home or work or as unique gifts for others.
The majority of my photographs are taken using a Nikon D2x DSLR, Fuji X-1E and X-T1 Cameras. The images are then processed in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to ensure a high quality finish.
