My main areas of interest are hill and countryside walking in the UK, especially in the Thames Valley region, also UK and European travel. I have interests in nature, native woodlands, local history and architecture. I have been a keen hill walker for most of my life and have walked in many parts of the UK, from the rugged mountains of Scotland, to the much gentler contours of the Chiltern Hills.
I hold a Mountain Leader (summer) Certificate and have also worked as a part-time outdoor education instructor (though that was a good few years ago..!).
I am also a member of the Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild (www.owpg.org.uk).
Over the years I have written a number of books, all fully illustrated throughout with my own photographs, including Walking in the Chilterns (2014), The Great Stones Way (2014) and The North Wessex Downs (2013).
I have also written articles for a range of magazines including a series of walking articles for Berkshire and Buckinghamshire Life and Hampshire Life, as well as travel articles for both national, and local newspapers.
Main geographical areas covered are:
- North Wessex Downs AONB
- The Chilterns AONB
- Thames Valley, including Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Wiltshire
- Hampshire, including the New Forest National Park
The images on this site have been taken with various Olympus Digital Four Thirds and Micro Four Thirds cameras and lenses.
Post processing, where necessary, is done using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
