I am a mostly self-taught photographer. I like taking photographs of nature and the outdoors, especially plants, animals and landscapes. I live in the St Andrews area of Bristol and many of my photographs are taken locally although I also have pictures from further afield. In the 2017 art trail I will be showing pictures taken in Cambodia and hoping to raise money to pay for a teacher for the Banteay Chhmar community which is in the relatively undeveloped and poor northwest of the country. Some of my pictures are simple documentary photos with little or no editing, but when the mood takes me I experiment with more significant digital manipulation to produce what I hope are more unusual results. I’ve also recently started producing mixed media pieces involving portraiture through a combination of photography, acrylic paint and leaves.
