After an earlier life of photographing the world in glorious black and white, I switched to colour about 20 years ago. For the past 15 years or so I have been building up my travel photography portfolio and now have an extensive stock collection with particular emphasis on Eastern Europe, the Middle East and the Indian subcontinent. I have been shooting digitally for the past five years.

I am a regular contributor to World Religions and COPIX photographic libraries, and some of my images can also be found at www.photographersdirect.com (see Links page). My images have appeared in a number of Bradt Travel Guides, Insight Guides, Outdoor Photography, Photography Monthly and hidden europe magazines, the Daily Express, the Evening Standard, in travel brochures for Audley Travel, in a number of educational publications and as book covers for Bradt Travel Guides and Editori Riuniti (Italy).

Writing credits include Bradt Travel Guides to Serbia, Belgrade, Kyrgyzstan and Slow Norfolk & Suffolk, contributions to Travelers' Tales Turkey and Encounters with the Middle East, Insight Guide:The Silk Road and Lonely Planet: Northeast India, A Moveable Feast (Lonely Planet), Bus-Pass Britain (Bradt); regular features for hidden europe magazine and articles for magazines that include Geographical, Discovery Channel, Real Travel, The Sunday Times, Wizz, Walk, Discover Britain, Serendib, Outdoor Photography, Backpacker, JetWings, Discover India, Scottish Memories, Packed, Heritage and Perceptive Travel.

Ideally, I like to combine photography with travel writing to provide an integrated words and pictures package. For a brief profile about myself on the hidden europe website click here.

I am a member of the British Guild of Travel Writers. You can look at my miniwebsite here.

I am based in Norwich, UK and am happy to consider any commissions, whether writing/photo packages or simply images or words on their own.
