Whitehaven Beach I have lived in and around Sheffield, UK, since 2004 and have no plans to leave – I love the juxtaposition of cosmopolitan city, urban decay and stunning National Park countryside.

As an amateur photographer shooting with a Nikon D40 (Lenses: Nikkor 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6; Nikkor 50mm f1.8 & Sigma 70-300mm Macro f/4-5.6), the city offers limitless creative possibilities. I’m learning as I go but have some fabulous mentors and find the internet, particularly sites such as Flickr, an endless source of inspiration. My passions are Travel Photography and Flower Photography, but I’ll try my hand at anything!

I love travelling – be it in the UK or abroad, luxury or backpacking! I’m addicted to lazing on beaches, visiting new cities and countries, experiencing exotic cultures, listening to foreign languages and photographing spectacular scenery.
