My camera and I welcome you to our webpage 'Composing Colour'.

I'm a husband, father of two boys, and photographer. We are all - including my camera - passionate about the outdoors. 

I'm not a professional photographer and therefore, thankfully, I don't have to make a living from my camera, nor my camera from me. Photography is simply a hobby to be enjoyed. When I'm not working (or chasing after my two boys) I spend the little bit of quiet time I have with my camera in the beautiful countryside outside of the medieval cathedral city of Salisbury, England. We create images across the fields, forests and coastlines of Hampshire, Wiltshire and Dorset.


I am very lucky, as living in an old cottage in the British countryside means the inspiration for many of these photographs are on my doorstep, or at least a short walk away. And the public footpaths give me access to many secret places of true beauty. If I have the time - which I seldom do - and up for an adventure, the New Forest, the Solent, the South Downs and the Jurassic Coast, are all just a short drive away. We also love to travel and therefore many of the images are from even further afield.

I have split my portfolio between Forestscapes, Riverscapes, Seascapes, Mountainscapes, Ruralscapes, Urbanscapes and Wildlife Photography but the main theme throughout is Landscape Photography. If you want a snapshot of my work, head over to my highlights page. I also have a dedicated area for Travel Photography, mostly taken many years ago when I backpacked across Asia. If you want a snapshot of my travel photos, head over to my travel page. I also have an area dedicated to projects, the most recent being Bentley Wood, the magnificent managed woodland just a short walk from my home.

This website was originally set up for family and friends but hopefully others will enjoy it too. I have included a contact me form at the bottom of the page if you want a print, and a shop if you are interested in one of my photo cards, but I'm not a business, doing it purely for fun and the thrill of creating, so do please be patient if you request or order anything.

I hope you enjoy yourself looking around. We (that is my camera and I) are having a blast creating it!
