Born in the middle of England in 1984, the lakes and oceans have neither been something immediately accessible, nor immediately enticing to experience up close and personal. Despite this, the water has always been important to me, initially as an opportunity for fun and adventure and progressively as an opportunity to stay fit, explore, or relax at the water’s edge.
The sense of adventure has become stronger... I am a keen swimmer, diver, and slightly-better-than-beginner-surfer, and relish the opportunity to get out there whenever possible.
Something which has come hand-in-hand with the water is my love for animals and the natural world. With my move to Australia in 2013 and the discovery of photography, I’m outside whenever work can’t keep me inside, looking for shots of oceans and lakes, in addition to wildlife such as sharks or turtles: all of which capture a special moment for me, and hopefully mean something to others.
