Born almost 70 years ago in Tamworth, hence I had to become a trainspotter.
Had an interest in steam from 11 and has never left me.
I began photography a few years later but only took it seriously from around 1995 when I began taking pictures at Tanfield Railway where I volunteer at Christmas time as Santa!
For the last ten years I have been going to North America, at least once a year, to capture their railways. Trains in the landscape fascinates and the landscapes in the USA are exceptional.
I use a Nikon D4 with an 80-200 lens as favourite.
