My first camera was a Kodak Instamatic I took on a school trip to France aged 11.

I was hooked from that moment...

My first "proper" camera was a Praktica MTL5, beautifully made in the old DDR. A few additional lenses and I was a photographer.

Fully self-taught - learning about f stops and ISO - composition seemed to come naturally, although this is never taken for granted.

Fast forward to now - digital (Nikon and Pentax) along with Lightroom make the process much quicker, but no less satisfying.

I moved to Somerset in 2018.

I have loved the West Country all my life and anyone who visits will have indelible memories etched in their mind.

Bring these memories to life by having a piece of the West Country on your wall.

I do hope you like them.
