I'm a photographer based in the Shetland Islands, UK. I originally studied Graphic Design at Stockport College of Technology then Fine Art at Bradford College of Art, West Yorkshire, graduating in 1991.

Originally from Stockport in Greater Manchester, I relocated to the Shetland Islands in 2003, and had my first solo exhibition ‘100 Shetland Women’ at Shetland’s Bonhoga Gallery in 2007.

I've exhibited at The Islington Design Centre, London, the National Media Museum, West Yorkshire, Musee de l'Elysee, Lausanne, and Bonhoga Gallery, Shetland.

I continue to work on a variety of personal projects, alternating Shetland based subjects with portrait and travel based observational work. (Covid pandemic allowing...)
