Scilly and photography have been an enormous part of my life for a long time. I began my photography in Scilly over 45 years ago. Though I have travelled and lived overseas me and my family came home to Scilly 7 years ago and began building up professional photography business and guest house.

I work hard producing as beautiful images as I can mainly in the field of seascapes, portraiture and wedding photography. Here you have to turn your hand to anything that comes down the pike. Thus I am lead into the wonderful worlds of press photography, magazine work, PR and anything else anybody wants me to photograph. One day its a rough boat trip in the middle of winter to shoot vineyards on St Marins island. The next a family portrait on the beach in lovely evening light. All of the work is a challenge but it allows my creative juices to flow. Every day I feel privileged to be living and working as a photographer in an astoundingly beautiful place with many people I like and know well.

And then there is the light! It really is exceptional. I can’t explain why its so immensely rich here. As I sit here in my office looking out through the window of the cottage in late September, I see it there again even at mid day. Many people wont recognise it, but if you are a lover of light then you will be able to discern its special beauty and be able to really see it. ( If that makes any sense) Yes there are dull days and days when the light is good but a little flat but there are also many days throughout the year when the light just .....explodes! Because I’m here all year that’s the time I am able to get out there and look carefully and really see Scilly lit majestically.

Recently I have a new website for my land seascapes. So far its been great. There is quite a lot of interest in the high quality larger images mounted on board and canvases which have to seen to appreciate the quality. I think they are popular because they are really art pieces. People can order on line and the work arrives beautifully packaged at their door.

In complete contrast I am passionate about portrait and weddings photography and have spent a lot of time training with some of the very best contemporary photographers in this field. Last year I spent a week in Sydney Australia training with Jerry Ghions, recognised as one of the worlds very best. I love being part of someones most important day whether it be an important family portraits or a beautiful wedding in Scilly. I look for the emotion and love that plays out during the shoot. I want my photographs to be treasured not just because they are good professional images but because I have captured the spirit of the person and occasion. My wedding and portraiture website is;

For me photography and living here enable me to follow two passions. Neither one is a hobby but a way of life.
