This website is largely devoted to two projects, both involving historical buildings in China. The first, and biggest, is to photograph the surviving foreign-inspired buildings, of which there are many, in China's former treaty ports and leased territories. Although I have yet to cover several buildings in Beihai, Shanghai and Tianjin, this project is approaching completion.

The second is to record Hong Kong's 105 Declared Monuments. The collection continues to expand.

There is also a gallery of my landscape work and, for the ultimate landscape, one of panorama images. Finally, there is a small collection of people I have met on my travels.

Please contact me should you wish to use any of these images. I am particularly keen to support heritage projects, historical publications and anything involving education.

Latest update: 'The Southern Ports' (China) Gallery has been updated for a recent visit to Xiamen as have the related Special Collections.

“Master photographers are very, very passionate. It's simply not an option to be anything but passionate if you want to succeed. If the photographer ends up short on passion, the image will end up short of the mark.”
