Introducing my range of small, affordable photography guides for Suffolk and the UK. Spiral bound for ease of use when out in the field, these guides are an invaluable resource when planning your next photography trip.

In 2019 I published my first book – A Guide to Photographing the Suffolk Coast which was funded by the Amenity and Accessibility Fund administered by the Suffolk Coast and Heaths AONB

Take only Photos, Leave only Footprints – A Guide to Photographing the Suffolk CoastI have spent the past 10 years capturing the landscapes of the Suffolk Coast and have discovered a tranquil landscape where nature thrives, a place to be explored and enjoyed but also treasured and protected for future generations. I have discovered the many hidden gems that this coastline has to offer as well as the more iconic and familiar local landmarks.

This guidebook explores some of my favourite locations from tidal creeks to magical woodlands, colourful heathlands to vibrant coastal towns.

Filled with essential information and over 200 colour images it describes how to approach photography in some of the most picturesque locations in Suffolk. There are details of local landmarks, natural features to look out for and local wildlife to discover.

Covering 28 areas from the Stour Estuary to Covehithe and 50 separate locations this comprehensive book is the perfect guide to capturing the essence of the Suffolk Coast whether you are using a DSLR or a phone camera.

Grounded – a year of nature connection on Hollesley Marshes

Grounded – a year of nature connections on Hollesley Marshes started as a project in January 2020. It began as a piece of work to document a year in the life of Hollesley Marshes. This is an area I walk to every morning with my dog, it is somewhere I have learnt so much about simply by observing the landscape and wildlife on a daily basis.

In March 2020 the Covid-19 pandemic overtook all our lives and my project turned from a straight documentary to one which detailed my connection with the landscape through the constraints of my permitted daily exercise. The images portray fleeting moments captured during a morning walk. They were not pre planned, were shot without a tripod or filters and represent my reaction to a scene at a particular moment in time. They are intended to be viewed as a visual sketchbook of a special place.

Grounded is published as a limited run of 100 editions all numbered and signed
