I was born in the capital of the Fens, Wisbech, and spent my childhood helping my parents on their arable farm in Outwell, which is where I probably got my love for the great outdoors. Growing up without technology and spending most of my early years outdoors, you learn to respect the environment you live in and the part it plays in providing for those that depend on it.
I discovered an interest in photography quite late on in life really, which started with a digital point and shoot camera and then moved onto to a more ‘serious’ DSLR camera about 5 years ago. Once I’d mastered the basics of photography and how to shoot in ‘manual’, I decided to focus on purely landscape photography as a genre.
As far as landscapes go, most of the epic scenery that you would have probably seen captured already, was certainly nowhere near the flat Cambridgeshire Fens! I decided therefore to learn and develop my skills in this local area and try to photograph the unseen beauty of the East instead.
It wasn’t long before I extended my photography to videography and in 2018 I started my YouTube channel so I could share the local areas I was capturing on camera with a wider community and try and put the Fens on the map as a place to visit.
