The Print: Striving for Quality / Proud to be Local

I strive to bring you not only the highest quality prints but also prints that are unique. It's part of the mantra of my limited edition print series, but it also goes from my smaller decor pictures, framed photographs and gallery wrapped canvases. And its here that good, local, independent services come to the fore - something which I am proud to support.

All of the photographic prints are made using…

All of the photographic prints are made using museum-grade Canson Baryta paper - a sort of digital version of the old, traditional printing papers - whilst the gallery wrap canvas are made on 100% cotton Océ Universal Artist Matt 370g.s.m canvas.

The Subject: Honest, English Countryside Photography

My work - indeed, my interest in photography - is about the delicate interaction between the grand vista and all the intricate details of which it is made. Whether its my spring pictures of the Peak District or countryside photographs in the Yorkshire Dales, what draws me is the broad structure of the land; and yet what fascinates me is the detail - from the age old track to the unexplained kink in a stone wall. Capture the two together and you have the true beauty of the English Countryside.

To compliment this, my style is both honest and traditional. On location I work with a Hasselblad 501C/M film camera enabling me to capture (permanently!) the scene at extremely high resolution. I then have each film professionally scanned by one of the UK's leading experts, and finally prepare the chosen images for printing.

The print that you buy is thus a true likeness of the landscape that I saw - a peaceful, coherent vision with sufficient detail to allow the viewer to step into the frame and to explore the scene for themselves.
