I've been around photography and photographers for more than three decades. For the last ten years I’ve been running photographic workshops, and the previous twenty years were spent editing photojournalism on UK national newspapers.



These photographs are the beginning of a long-term project centred on the River Swale and woodland close to my home in the Yorkshire Dales. I've made the images as I walk my dog on the paths running alongside the river.

Fitting photography into my daily routine has been liberating and was sparked partly by a quote that resonated from LensWork founder Brooks Jenson when he said: "Maybe the great lesson that is presented to us every day is that there will never be time for photography, but that there is always time for life. When we find a way to make photography fit our life we'll have time for photography. Perhaps we'd best learn this before our time for life runs out."
