“I am a professional photographer based in Slaidburn, specialising in landscape and garden photography.  In 2020 I had a commended image in the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition and have supplied images to Ribble Valley tourist centres and Platform Gallery.  I sell prints and greetings cards of my images.  I am also an author and have had 4 books of landscape photography published by Merlin Unwin Books.  These are:  “The Forest of Bowland”, “Land’s End to John o’Groats”, “The Pennines, Backbone of England”, and “A String of Pearls; Landscape and Literature of the Lake District”.
