I’m a British native but found my way to New Mexico where I have lived for the past 20 years.
I became interested in photography during high school when I borrowed my dad’s camera and joined a photography club. Of course in those days it was film but it taught me to be selective when taking a shot. After leaving school I focused on my career but after a divorce I decided I needed a hobby and returned to my true passion of photography. To shine a light on the mysteries of digital photography I attended classes offered by the University of New Mexico Continuing Education Program.
I see the world in a different light when looking through the lens of a camera. A mundane object can seem magical. I’m constantly in awe of what an amazing world we live in. The art of photography has reminded me that it’s not what you see but how you see it.
My photography is mostly focused on the breath-taking landscapes and wildlife of New Mexico. The state is blessed with stunning desert landscapes, snow capped mountains, and a rich history. It is frequently referred to as ’The Land of Enchantment and I’m excited to share visions of my adopted home and stories about my journey as a photographer.
I have been published several times in the New Mexico Magazine as a winner in multiple photo contests.
