Alongside On Landscape, one of my other business is the scanning of film for artists, museums, publishers, etc. We’re the only dedicated drum scanning company in the UK and we get film sent to us from all over, China to Brazil, Sweden to New Zealand.

Months go by in a doldrum state where nothing feels right and I am uninspired by what I make, and then, little by little, things turn around and something emerges from the mayhem. more
I have been fortunate to photograph many landscapes in a variety of different countries throughout the world but the photographs I had seen of Japan always seemed to have a difference that was difficult to categorise. more
I often think of images as parts put together in a visually interesting manner. When the parts come together eloquently, they create meaning and message. more
