Me lining up a shot, Lanzarote Airport (Arrecife), May 2012
I am an aviation photographer from the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border. My interest in aviation was sparked by my very first flight in 1992, aged 11. I still remember almost every detail of this flight, including visiting the flight deck (a rare treat nowadays).
Onboard my very first flight, LHR-SVO (BA 767) in 1992, aged 11.
I started taking photographs when I was 13 years old, on day trips to Birmingham and East Midlands Airport. These were the days of BAC 1-11s and 727s, when there was no such thing as a low cost airline, and every airport had a viewing gallery.
Times may have changed but in the 20 years that have passed I have travelled the world enjoying my hobby, taking me to places far and wide, including amazing places such as New Zealand, Singapore, the USA and Hong Kong.
I am happily married and we have a beautiful son, who is fast following in his Daddy's footsteps :-)
