I live in a small village in North Yorkshire where I run a B&B with my wife, Anne. I also own and run Belmont Studios, a gallery and workshop space. My photography is mainly analogue based using film cameras and printing in my own darkroom but I do use digital for colour projects and commissions when called for.

I’m learning saxophone and write and record my own music.
