Easy on the eye.


Amateur Status

Although I have taken photographs professionally, I'm not a professional photographer.

While my lens work has been associated with PR, copywriting and web design, in the projects I used to undertake, what appears in each of the four galleries below, are personal pictures that appeal to me, many taken with Canon pocket compact cameras, some with more capable Canon gear and all chosen for their visual appeal rather than any technical merit.

I have, however, tried to avoid the family holiday snaps!

Over time, these galleries will change, with the addition of new (and hopefully better) images, while others may be culled.

Dredging the sand
at Padstow

With sands shifting at every tide, the Doom Bar requires regular dredging to keep the narrow channels deep enough for the ferry to Rock and tourist cruises to ply their trade and a variety of sailing and pleasure craft to enjoy the River Camel.
