Welcome to Coloured Images. Here you will find a varied collection of images that I have taken over the last few years. My passion for photography started over thirty years ago on my first trip abroad to Kenya. All I could afford then was a basic Russian Zenith and a couple of cheap lenses. Still, they did the job and I still have the slides to show for it. After that trip I didn't pick up a camera for many years.

My passion was rekindled with the advent of digital photography and I soon started to build up varied portfolio that just sat on the computer doing nothing. My father-in-law encouraged me to enter a competition, which I did after much deliberation. To my great surprise my entry actually won first prize; £1000, a full back-page spread in the Yorkshire Post and to this day the shot still features on packets and tubs of Yorkshire crisps.

Since then my passion has gone from strength to strength with work published in National photographic journals, local media and a couple of internet publications. I have a number of regional and national photographic competition wins under my belt, with some of the work featured on this site.

I market my work as "photographic art for the home". Essentially I am trying to produce aesthetically pleasing images to adorn your walls. The galleries featured on my site will give you a good understanding of my favourite subjects and I'm sure you will recognise there is a common theme of reflections running through the galleries. Thank you for taking the time to visit my site, I hope you enjoy it. Feel free to leave feedback on individual images or in the guestbook. I look forward to meeting some of you at the various events I attend.
