 Photographers bio

Been a keen photographer for many years now, having started with a box brownie, and having had many camera’s over the years, now have a Canon EOS600D, always loved taking Landscape pictures and now take a lot of seascapes, and living near to the Jurassic coast give me a lot of opportunity.
