Based in Sherwood Forest, North Nottinghamshire, England, I have lived in and around the area for most of my life.
Essentially self-taught, I learn something new every day. I am inspired by the following photographers, artists and writers but the list is by no means complete.
Paul Strand, Josef Sudek, Stephen Shore, Joel Sternfeld, Robert Adams, Minor White, Imogen Cunningham, Laura Gilpin, Harry Callahan, Edward Weston, Paul Hill, Raymond Moore, John Blakemore, Thomas Joshua Cooper, Chris Killip, Alec Soth, Gerry Johansson, Michael Fattorini, Adam Dunning, Ray Metzker, Robert Frank, Walker Evans, Mr And Mrs Becher, Jan Tove, Eliot Porter, Ellsworth Kelly, Mark Rothko, Fay Godwin, George Tice, Don McCullin, Eugene Atget, Andre Kertesz, Lee Friedlander, George Logan, David Buchanan, Martin Parr, Stuart Franklin, the many, many wonderful photographers at London Independent Photography and Shutter Hub. The writings of John O’Donohue, John Berger, Geoff Dyer, Jorg Colberg, Tristan Gooley, Robert MacFarlane.
The list goes on and on, there are so many. I return so often to Strand and Sudek.
