“ Travelling – it leaves you speechless then turns you into a story teller. ” Ibn Battuta

How a love of travel turned me into a photojournalist and writer


In the course of a days work, I meet so many people, it may be a brief encounter, however their faces tell a story about how they live, work and play.




Wanderlust and the desire to document the world around me has been a lifelong passion. Whenever possible, I divert from the well-trodden tourist routes to search for the true flavour of the countries I visit. 



Published Work

My motto… ‘Have Camera – will travel’ has led to commissions and assignments for magazines, newspapers and guide books, my challenge is always to convey a story creatively through my photography and writing. 



Gower Gallery

Gower designated as Britain’s First Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with such dramatic coast and countryside on my doorstep how could I not become a photographer, each season the landscape changes weathered by storms, transformed by incredible light and breath-taking sunsets.  


Photojournalist, Travel Photographer and Writer

My travel has taken me all over the world and meant that I have worked for Various organisations and produced all manner of photographic and written pieces. These have included:

  • Commercial and business photography
  • Articles for magazines and online
  • Pictures for the web
  • Working for PR companies
  • Government and local authority work
  • Travel writing and photography
