I started my journey into photography with a simple desire to escape the winter blues and just get outside more often.
So I took up running, grabbed my camera to take along with me. I discovered winter wasn’t so bad after all and I could always find something beautiful even on the gloomiest of days.
This has given me a love of light and a fascination with the changing of the seasons. I share these photos with you now in the hope they brighten up your day.
In 2017 I was selected as one of the six finalists in the Surrey in Bloom photography competition with the Surrey Advertiser.
I’ve had two photographs selected to be included in Surrey libraries ‘Words in Focus’ book. Which toured the Surrey Libraries in 2017 and featured poetry on a range of topics along with breath-taking landscape photographs of Surrey. The book has since been uploaded as an eBook to Overdrive, the main eBook provider for Surrey Library users to borrow.
