Professional Photography

I work for museums and art galleries, also as a Landscape and Theatre photographer.

Museum & Gallery
Archive/record photography of paintings, works of art and museum artefacts. Clients include Royal Armouries Museum, Leeds Museums and Galleries, Brontë Society and The Hepworth Wakefield. I have also worked frequently with artists, collectors and publishers including Catherine Bertola, Ruth Lyons, Cornelia Parker, Ronnie Duncan, New Arcadian Journal.

I have photographed exhibitions and art installations across Yorkshire, at Harewood House, Leeds Art Gallery, Project Space Leeds, The Tetley, Pavilion and Brontë Parsonage Museum.

My extensive collection of British landscapes covers Yorkshire, the Lake District, the Scottish Highlands & Islands. I have worked for countryside organisations, publishers and magazines, as well as mounting my own exhibitions.

I illustrated Ann Dinsdale’s definitive study The Brontës at Haworth, and I am author of three books about Yorkshire: Pennine Landscapes, The South Pennines and Brontë Country (both with Judith Warner) and Discovering West Yorkshire. In the 1990s I photographed the Pennine Way and Peddars Way/Norfolk Coast Path for National Trail Guides.
