2nd to 5th June, 11am - 4pm daily

I am a professional photographer, specialising in landscapes and fine art. The British landscape provides a rich vein of inspiration for me, with the stunning Yorkshire countryside holding particular importance to me. I strive to take eye-catching and arresting images, with strong graphical elements and a sense of atmosphere.

My interest in photography began when using my father’s old Praktica SLR camera. I’m a keen hiker and cyclist, and was drawn towards landscape photography. Though initially self taught, I completed a photographic degree course at Leeds Metropolitan University in 2007.

My work has appeared in publications including The Guardian, Amateur Photographer, Practical Photography, Digital Photo and The Architects' Journal.
