Welcome. These galleries of images represent my passion for what's loosely called The Great Outdoors. They have been made whilst doing 'stuff' out there - walking, sea kayaking, mountaineering, ski touring, biking. I hope you enjoy them.

Hello there,

I hope you enjoy the images on these pages. They reflect my fondness for Britain's Uplands; areas small in stature and size but places where it's still possible to find adventure and inspiration. Also featured is Norway, surely the greatest ski touring destination in the world ?

If you visit the Peak District and would like to see the photos in their physical, framed form, I have an exhibition in Jo Royle Outdoor in Buxton, an outdoor retailer with which I have a long association and where I can occasionally be found helping out behind the counter ( )

My pictures have been published in the Sunday Times, Rough Guides, Trail, Country Walking, Daily Telegraph, Guardian, National Geographic, Ute (Norway) amongst others. 

My equipment is Fuji X system beautifully designed cameras that echo the stripped-down Contax S2 which I used for many years in the days of 35mm film. 

I won the 'Best Single Image, Art of Travel' award in  the 2019 Travel Photographer of the Year

and also won the UK Mountain Photographer of the Year 2017

Holiday property photography

The quality of images that your potential visitors see is paramount - quality photography inspires confidence of a quality experience. Ambience is key, can the customer envisage themselves relaxing in your property, sitting by that fire or quietly reading in the garden ?

A on-off investment in your images will repay many times  over many years

Airbnb reckon that professional images can increase earnings by 40%

This type of photography is not dissimilar to landscapes; it's about light and points of interest and directing the eye using composition and focus.

If you're interested in this service in the Peak District area drop me an email at         

Price guide :  1 bed cottage / apartment  £130 then +£10 per additional bedroom

Each image is individually assessed & processed.
