I enjoy photography and the many facets it involves, be it the different technology or how it can get you to interact with people and places you would not meet or see without doing so.

I taught at a Coleg Gwent a Further Education College during my Teaching Training and for a year after graduating from my PGCE.

I now mostly teach the year long Level 2 & 3 Photography Courses, and term long Camera Skills courses, I enjoy teaching all levels, especially enjoy helping individuals develop their skills over a period of time.
I have in the past mostly focussed on landscape photography. My work at this point now is more documentary in nature and looking currently at a local area and documenting the space, the people and how the space is used, and how we interact with the small but important local leisure areas.
I have through my education and teaching practiced and experimented in different genres and techniques, I enjoy playing with photography and even though my landscape work is what i show and promote I enjoy all types of photography and I enjoy always learning.
