This is a showcase for some selected images from my portfolio. I hope to share some of the pleasures of living in this beautiful part of the country, as well as explaining something about where or why I made specific images.

About the photos

Most of the photos you will find here are taken in and around the pretty coastal town of Lyme Regis in the southwest of England. Lyme is surrounded by the stunning scenery of the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site which stretches west into Devon and east into Dorset. The hinterland is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), and it offers many opportunities for the landscape photographer.

I specialise in natural abstracts, seaside scenes and landscapes, from West Dorset and East Devon, and farther afield into Exmoor and Dartmoor for example. It’s sometimes a challenge to find new angles on familiar places, but one which I relish. Although some of the shots here are typical tourist mementos, I have also captured some of the little details and quirky corners of Lyme and its surroundings that others may have missed. I hope you enjoy seeing the world through my eyes…
