My camper-van-camino through the British Isles.

Each Friday I post out a digest recording my discoveries in my time-travelling camper van.

Member Powered Photography

I'm also creating member powered photography where memberships will enable me to take time out to photograph places in the historic environment without passing on the costs.

These are difficult times. Member powered photography will give such sites access to free gold standard photography and videography, and enable them to invest the funds saved into urgent need projects, whilst having access to top level media for their needs.

100 Members will release the next photo shoot

Achieving 100 paid memberships will enable me to photograph another site in the historic environment without passing on the costs.

Members will be able make suggestions with the brief, provide micro-local information as to best spots to photograph, and engage in the photoshoots with me via an immersive experience. Members will also get to see a selection of the final professional photographs.
This isn't a vanity project. All projects and media will only be accessible to members. Chosen sites won't be listed publicly unless they choose to do so.

From Breakdown to New Vocation: My Genius Loci Digest Journey
In the late 1990’s I had a breakdown that ultimately led me, through a journey that took me away from depression, to a new career in photography. But what was the spark that ignited my journey?

"It's a brilliant email. I'm including the latest one in my weekly Five Good Things email if that's okay? I love how you notice the details - we can all learn from that."

And thank you so much, for the keen lens and thoughtful pen you combine so effectively. As long as we can see, and think, there is hope…
