This is me, exploring the beautiful Wilsons Promontory, Australia.
I am a Brighton based photographer specialising in landscape astrophotography. Using long exposures I uncover the hidden objects and beauty of the night sky above Brighton's famous landmarks and the rolling hills of the South Downs - depicted in such works as the 'Milky Way above the Brighton Palace Pier', the 'Royal Pavilion and the Stars' and the first 'Brighton Aurora!'. These images also illustrate how the skies would appear to the naked eye if unaffected by the significant light pollution found in the heart of the city.
I am also a big fan of capturing huge Moon photos, explained in my blog here: Why does the Moon look so Huge in Photos (Brighton edition)?
Planning is a key part of my photography, with ideas that need to be revisited weeks to months later - when the sun is setting in the distance, the moon has risen in the desired location, or when the stars are in the correct alignment for the perfect scene. It's this patience for a photograph that provides the most satisfaction when it succeeds (though sometimes the great outdoors prefers to bring clouds!).
Late 2021 I released the first edition of the popular 'Brighton 2022 Astro Calendar' featuring local Brighton landmarks in conjunction with astronomical objects of the night sky and I am now proud to have finished the Brighton 2023 Astro Calendar.

In 2022 I exhibited at the Artists Open Houses for the first time at 'Art at 23' on the Fiveways trail and 'The Claremont' on the Hove Arts trail.
