A little about me - I am a freelance writer and photographer based in Leeds, West Yorkshire. I'm married to my best friend and we have one son who is 14 years old. 

I am a contributing writer for Gardenista, 91 Magazine and This is Your KingdomMy work has been featured in The Simple Things magazine June 2016 edition which you can see here and in the October 2017 edition which you can see here. I have also recently written and photographed features for In The Moment magazine. If you'd like to work with me on a feature idea, then please do get in touch via email on

I also teach photography workshops for beginners at Chirpy in Leeds. The next one is in May 2018. 

I write mainly about slow and simple living - embracing the seasons, nature, my home, gardening and cookery. I've been vegetarian for 28 years. 

I'm passionate about sharing my love of Yorkshire and you can find my posts all about it here.  I reviewed and photographed Burtersett Cottage in the Yorkshire Dales for the holiday company, Gorgeous Cottages and more recently, Gateways in Thornton-le-Dale. In Autumn 2017 I've also worked with the North York Moors National Park and Betty's. 

I love to capture the beauty of the UK, from it's stunning coastline, enigmatic moorland, historic houses to the most charming villages and towns I have ever had the pleasure to explore. Never without my camera or iPhone in hand, I love taking photographs of the outside world, especially landscapes, gardens, the sea and forests. You can see more of my lifestyle photography here
