2016 'Dorset's Dark Skies' calendar now available to purchase

Renowned landscape astrophotographer, with images and features published on the front covers of calendars, magazines and books. In July 2013, my photograph of Durdle Door was featured as the Guardian Eyewitness photo of the day, being printed as the centre-page spread in the national newspaper. The same image is on the front cover of the Astronomy Photographer of the Year Collection 2 book, as well as their 2015 Calendar, both sold internationally.

I moved down to Dorset after finishing a Graphic Design course at The University of Wales, Newport. I moved to Bridport soon afterwards. I thoroughly enjoy work as a Digital Executive for Watershed PR. I'm also the Art Director for Yarn Magazine.

Constantly taking photographs in my spare time, particularly at night. You can view all of my best work on my website,

I have also built up a large local news and events Facebook page, Bridport Notice, which has over 9,300 'likes' to date (August 2015).
