Walking trips with my dad when I was young were always exciting voyages of discovery. I’ve been capturing those adventures photographically ever since, starting with an instamatic camera given to me for my ninth birthday, through black+white to colour slides and now digital format. Photography helps me share my interests in travel, history, people, cultures and landscapes. In 2013 I walked the Camino de Santiago, almost by accident, resulting in my first foray as an author, Finding My Way: Autumn on the Camino Frances, due to be published on Blurb in August 2016.
After years of working as a geologist in mineral exploration, a fascination with photohistory has recently led to a fledgling career in the museum industry. On my next Camino in October 2016, I’ll be recording the landscapes and people I meet with both a digital camera and a hundred year-old Vest Pocket Kodak.
