Originally from t'other side of Pennines, so the gritstone edges of the Peak have been part of my life since I was wee: shame I took up climbing on them so late...

About My Photography
I've been taking pictures on all manner of cameras since my teenage years - usually landscapes - with some degree of success.
The instant feedback of digital has allowed me to refine my technical ability and now I'm equipped with a reasonable DSLR I'm looking to 'do something a bit different' with my climbing shots that only this kit will allow. No idea if I'll be successful, but it's worth trying I think! :-)

Anything Else We Should Know
Yes, I am almost always injured.
No, its not sunburn.
(Those that know me will understand!).
Now know I can't live anywhere without rocks and hills for any significant length of time.
Have recently decided that this winter climbing lark might not be all bad after all... I blame all the years ski-ing...
