All the photographs in the drop down menu in 'Portfolio' are taken at Borth in Ceredigion, in mid-Wales. Borth is the location of many happy childhood holidays and somewhere I have returned to regularly over the years.
My photography has been inspired by the relationship between the sea, the stones and the groynes on the beach at Borth. I love being by the sea, just watching the tides move in and out. I became fascinated observing the natural world at work.
I published 'A Coastal Reflection’ - a book containing over 30 of my favourite Borth images, at the end of 2010. Little did I know I was creating unwittingly something of an historical record as many of the groynes have now disappeared from the beach to make way for the new stronger sea defences. For more on 'what happened next' check out the 'About' section.
I have been surprised and delighted by the interest in my work to date and the requests to have my images produced as canvas or block prints.
If you would like to enjoy one of my images in your home, please use the Contact page to let me know which image you are interested in and I will be pleased to discuss the best options for creating a quality finished product of your favourite image.
Borth continued to make the headlines...
The storms through the Winter and Spring 2013/14, heralded re-emergence of significant areas of the forest skeletons on parts of the beach, and made headline news across the UK. Have a look at the Borth Forest tab for some of my images of the prehistoric forest taken as far back as 2007.

NEWS - July 2016
I am delighted to say that a second exhibition of work from 'A Coastal Reflection' will be held at the ADRIFT GALLERY during the summer months of this year, thanks to Frederica and Anne for their continued support.
Books, cards and postcards from 'A Coastal Reflection' exhibition are always available at ADRIFT too.
