South Georgia

I've always taken "snaps" on holiday, but I fell in love with "real" photography 8 years ago on an expedition through the New Zealand Sub-Antarctic Islands to Mawson's Huts in Antarctica. I also fell in love with the polar regions and I return whenever I can.


I fell in love with both photography and the polar regions on my first expedition to Antarctica from New Zealand in 2010. Before my return trip from Argentina in February 2017, I devoured Joe Cornish's article and video in On Landscape!

South Georgia was probably the most beautiful place we visited. I have chosen a letterbox format to emphasise the vastness of the vistas.

After a mid-career switch from accountancy to farming, I have recently retired to a house that needs doing up in an ancient beech woodland in the Chilterns. Whenever possible I indulge my passion for travel photography.
