I was born in Derbyshire on the edge of the Peak District National Park and from early age I developed a deep appreciation of my natural surroundings. Walking in the local countryside became a favourite pastime and in later years this extended beyond my native Peak District to encompass the Lake District, Snowdonia and Scotland.Fortunate that my job involved extensive travel, I also spent long periods in the mountains, working on location in the Alps and amongst the dramatic scenery of Southern Spain. My passion for the outdoors grew, and skiing, mountain biking and rock climbing provided more adventurous ways of being intimate with the landscape. To record these adventures I always travelled with a camera but I never seemed to capture, to my satisfaction, the scale and magnificence of the scene.
