I am a 28 year old Norfolk Based Professional Landscape Photographer specialising in images of Norfolk, Suffolk & The Peak District. I regularly write for some of the UK’s leading photography magazines and have had four books published exclusively on my work. Based in East Anglia, the Norfolk & Suffolk Broads and Norfolk & Suffolk Coastline are all only a short drive away. These are the areas I most enjoy photographing as there are so many wonderful opportunities and locations often ignored by other landscape photographers. The Norfolk & Suffolk Broads and the salt marshes of the North Norfolk Coast are also a haven for wildlife which means whether I am photographing landscape or wildlife images I am never short of subjects or locations to photograph. I am also lucky that my girlfriend originally came from the edge of The Peak District National Park and with lots of family and friends in the area we try and visit the area for at least a few days every month.
With my own photography I work hard on trying to get the best possible image in camera and keeping the photoshop side of things quick and simple. I use Lee ND Grad filters to control exposure differences in camera, whilst I am not against photographers using modern image blending techniques such as HDR I prefer to spend my time out in the field chasing the light rather than being stuck in the office merging differently exposed images for hours. For me it is light that makes a really strong image and I can often be found waiting hours upon hours in the field waiting for the light to break. If the light is poor I will either wait or return to the location at a further date. If I am not shooting a silhouette image of a great sky at sunrise or sunset then it’s very rare for me to take a landscape image without natural good quality light illuminating the scene. By making the natural light such a priority I feel this ensures my images are bright and vibrant and helps separate my images from a lot of other photographers.
