I am an amateur photographer based in the county of Kent, in the UK.  The varied landscapes of the south of England – the woodlands, coastal areas, marshlands and urban green spaces – are my primary subjects, but I also love to experiment with other forms of photography, particularly street and documentary. 

Photography, whatever the genre, has taught me to slow down and pay attention.  It has given me a creative way to experience, document and share the places that I visit, the moments of interaction between people, the ever-changing light, the details that I might otherwise have missed.

I completed several short photography courses with Kent Adult Education, and then studied at Morley College in London, where I gained both level 2 and level 3 City & Guilds qualifications.  I have also completed PhotoVoice's training programme in the facilitation of participatory photography projects.

My non-photographic work has always been in supported housing, with people with disabilities or those who are homeless, both in the UK and in Canada.  I am keen to establish further connections between this area of my life and my photography.
