I started taking photographs at the age of fourteen, quite simply for my own enjoyment and as a new hobby that I was keen to learn more of. The amount of pleasure that I then got from it all made me want to develop my skills further...
My main photography scope is to recreate bygone scenes of Britain's railway heritage, sights that were once consigned to the history books. This is something that I feel very passionate about and when I turned sixteen in 2017 I started volunteering on the East Lancashire Railway on one of their Stations, and worked my way up to becoming a Guard in 2019, then in 2021 I became a Mechanical Engineering Apprentice with the railway, maintaining and restoring steam locomotives for a living. Living the dream!
I'm very lucky to be based in the Rossendale Valley, with some gorgeous walks and scenery on the doorstep whilst also being close enough to venture over the hill to the Yorkshire Dales and adjoining counties, to visit some of my all time favourite beauty spots. The sense of being in the 'here and now' is never greater than when I'm out photographing wildlife and tranquil scenes that our landscape has to offer.
Throughout all of my work I strive to capture new locations, different angles and undiscovered territory in order to come away with a unique and memorable image that others have not done before. This has meant discovering some beautiful places and hidden gems that I simply wouldn't have ordinarily found had it not been for my photography.
Overall, being able to combine my passions has just been incredible. With images reaching a global audience, publishings in magazines and newspapers and a greatly appreciated social media following too. I've felt so humbled to have had the response to my images, and I cannot thank each and every one of you enough for taking the time to visit my website.
