WATCH A SHOWREEL
I am an award-winning photographer and filmmaker based in Norwich, specialising in photofiction and creatively processed digital imagery.
I began my working life as a Cartographic Draughtsman for the Ordnance Survey, which gave me the foundation for an enduring passion of topography and landscape. I then trained as a photographer before moving into television production, spending many years as a documentary filmmaker. (see Films gallery)
My principal photographic style is to overlay and blend images together. I converge various filmic techniques with abstract textures, shapes and light dances. By adding distressed grains, veins and fragments of text or scratches, I want to achieve painterly digital impressions that awaken remnants of memory such as old photo albums or other fleeting glimpses of past experiences.
I explore remote and under-visited areas of our countryside; forgotten, rarely trodden landscapes off-the-beaten track and beyond the obvious. I seek out ruined dwellings and half-buried remains decayed with the passage of history while still retaining a magical atmosphere and an air of secrecy or mystery. In addition I particularly enjoy photographing redundant and ruined churches and their interiors, fabric and memorials. These buildings exude a sense of expansive heritage which I evoke in my work.
