Welcome to this modest showcase of creative and travel photography, with a selection of writing and design work. Much is recent, while some looks back over a number of years. For want of anything better that awkward word “creative” is used here to mean photos made for their own sakes; pictures which might have some meaning, or might end up on an exhibition wall. Are they Art? Almost certainly not!

Photography was initially just an interest for me, then became a serious hobby, and finally turned into a part of my working life in one way or another. Today I like to combine it with some form of written narrative – the largest section of this site documents a five-week European rail tour of twenty towns and cities in Austria, Germany, the Czech Rebublic and Poland, and is made up of more than 1,300 images and 40,000 words of text.

But single images are important too. I try hard to get them right in-camera and to optimise them using Photoshop and other software afterwards. Many images on this site are available hi-res for commercial or editorial use, and some are now available as prints.



A Grand Tour

Documentary and travel photography: the story of a five-week, music-themed rail journey in central Europe. I visited towns and cities with classical music connections: 20 destinations in Germany, Austria, the Czech Republic and Poland. With more than 1,300 images and 40,000 carefully researched words, this microsite includes nerdy notes on trains and photo equipment.


‘Architecture’ gallery

A collection of photographs from across the site, with a broad range of subject matter which might loosely be termed 'architectural'. It includes exteriors and interiors from London, Cambridge, Edinburgh, Berlin, Rome, Milan and more.

'By the Fountain'

Recent photography

Some current photography in a collection that builds over the winter, plus archives for the last 12 or so years.

The Lake District

These photos of the English Lake District have been collected over many years in a wide range of walking conditions. Galleries redesigned November 2015.


Trekking photos from the wild landscapes of Iceland, from the High Atlas mountains of Morocco, and the Pindos Mountains in north-western Greece.

'Caught in the Light'

Image of the Month

I try to feature a new image each month. It might not happen on time, but I try!


‘Shapes’ gallery

Strong composition, simplified images, blocks of colour. Pictures that are almost abstract and yet still recognisable.

'Holocaust Mamorial'


MEMORIAL is a thoughtful photo book featuring images of the Denkmal für die ermordeten Juden Europas Memorial to the Murdered Jews of Europe in Berlin (usually called the 'Holocaust Memorial').
