About My Photography
Bog-standard digital with lots of Photoshop cheating.
Anything Else We Should Know
Passing interest in guidebooks. See 1969 guide to Heysham and Morecambe bouldering... would have been remaindered but there was only one copy. On Peak Rock, Chew, Bleaklow and Kinder Ed. Enjoyed proofing several Rockfax guides (all remaining mistakes are possibly but not necessarily mine). Life-time ambition completed: stop bitching and help edit European guidebooks (Kalymnos 2006, 2008, 2010). Dual residency: Greece and The Hudd.
