Born in 1954 in Blackpool, United Kingdom. I grew up around Photography, my father was a keen photographer, developed, enlarged and printed his own black and white photographs, not sure what he would have made of our digital age.
I was fortunate that both my parents were keen outdoor loving people, my mother a fell walker and my father a keen cyclist. All our holidays were either spent in Scotland or the English Lake District.
I started work age 16 at GSK in Ulverston, Cumbria, UK. Only 20 mins away from my beloved Lake District, I fell walked, rock climbed, caving, pot holing and cycled, always carrying a camera. After 33 years I took voluntary early retirement and took a position as an Estate Worker at Muncaster Castle, Cumbria, I had spent long enough working indoors.
Sadly my wife became poorly in 2004 and I left to become her full time caregiver.
I am a member of Cumbria Wildlife Trust, The Woodland Trust, The Royal Photographic Society and BestTopPhotographer.com.
I am able to go out locally for short spells of time, with my camera.
I hope you all enjoy my photos.
