Welcome to Earthlight


In a way this is my personal nature journal where I share my photographs, videos and words gathered from my wanderings and wonderings on the land. I'm a nature photographer and writer by vocation who needed to find a new way to tell these stories.

In this troubled times it's all to easy to lose sight of the beauty of the small things that live alongside us and if Earthlight inspires you to connect more, to journey outdoors into wildness often and to dream of nature's tales, then I've achieved my objectives.

I've served my time with magazine and book publishers and hope Earthlight will become the journal, gallery and resource that I've always looked for. You can find out more about the mission of the site on this page, other than that just dive in!
