The Big picture – Stunning

I am a 20-year-old history student with a  passion for landscape photography.

Capturing sunrise and cloud inversions takes a lot of commitment, especially summer mornings when the sun rises at 5am. Winter mornings pose the threat of severe wind-chill on the high tors.

Anticipating weather patterns and pursuing red sunsets is a constant struggle, therefore I am a firm believer that the art of photography itself is not hard to learn but being fortunate enough to be in the right place at the right time is the single hardest obstacle to getting worthwhile images.

Teaching myself photography through video tutorials and trial and error, I have been able to gain knowledge that has enabled me to capture photographs throughout the UK and abroad.

After finishing my A-levels at Devonport
High School for Boys, I decided to pursue my photography further through a gap year.
Travelling to Europe, Canada and South
America as well as Scotland on home soil, I have built up my portfolio to where it is now.
Currently studying at Lancaster University,
I travel frequently to the beautiful Lake District and Yorkshire Dales. During holidays,
I make the most of my time in Tavistock,
photographing Dartmoor and the dramatic coastline of Cornwall.

With an increasing saturation of good images online, it is a very hard task to stand out from the crowd. This is why I constantly try to think of new ideas and perspectives, which will hopefully show you a different aspect of the Dartmoor that everyone knows and loves.
