After moving to Northern Norway from my home town Warwick, England, I quickly fell in love with the nature found in this part of the world. I have always loved to be outdoors and have hiked, scrambled and climbed in many beautiful parts of the UK. From my first visits to Norway I felt at home in her mountains and forests.
I eventually settled in a small town called Harstad with my wife and young family. Many of our weekends and holidays have been spent in the forests and mountains and all of our children have from an early age camped out under the open sky - summer and winter.
This is a country of mountains, fjords, forests and lakes. The short summers contrast the long winters. During the summer the sun does not set for about two months - this is the time of the "midnight sun". Conversely, the sun does not rise for two months in the winter - this is the "polar night".
During the winter months the only light is from the moon, the stars and, of course, the northern lights - or aurora borealis. Many would presume that this is a period of complete darkness, but it isn’t. It is in fact a time of contrasts, shadows and fantastic colours reflected off snow-covered mountains and icy fjords.
My passion is taking photos and time-lapses of landscapes. Just being outdoors no matter what season it is gives me energy and keeps my feet firmly placed on the ground. I have been fortunate enough to travel to many fantastic places in Norway and Sweden and feel that I have only just scratched the surface. I have become a proficient skier and this has given me the added opportunity to travel cross-country to places far off the beaten track during our coldest and darkest season - sometimes being out in the field for many days. Landscape photography is part of the adventure as you never know what you may experience and what you may capture.
I hope you will enjoy my work!
