Originally starting out in a more traditional style of landscape and nature photography, I found my interest shifting more towards dereliction and urban decay, which then became the main focus of my work between 2008-2014. More recently I have been concentrating on street photography, incorporating both street candid and urban landscape in a more social historian/documentary style. I work primarily in black and white.
