Just a photographer

People ask me when did I start photography, I was twelve and growing up in a small market town called Cardigan on the West Wales coast line. I can remember seeing a new style of camera called a Polaroid camera, it developing an image in front of my eyes and since then I have been hooked on photography. I cannot draw the vistas I see, photography took the place of drawing and being able to show my images through my lens based work, it is like a story of my travels.

A lot has happened in my photographic life so far, I am proud to have be awarded a BA Honours in Photojournalism from Swansea Metropolitan University in 2011.
