Hello, I am a graphic designer from the lovely Isle of Portland in Dorset.

I was born here but travelled a little along the the south coast settling for a while here and there but eventually returning to my home where I now live with my wife and daughter.

I have been working for the local authority since 1989 producing different forms of artwork and publicity/information material, for tourism, publicity and corporate, including the design and production of the local Weymouth and Portland tourism guide.

I have been interested in photography for many years, having various cameras from a Kodak Instamatic to my latest camera a Nikon D80.

My interests are quite varied and lie mainly in the arts, film and music.

My favourite artists are Van Gogh, Matisse and Dufy, and whenever we are up in the smoke or Paris we always make time to visit the art galleries.

Still a little obsessed with Flickr, still spending far too much time looking at other users images, managing my own images and generally tinkering with photos.

Peter is first and foremost, an artist - the cross section of his work demonstrates that he is not bogged down in any aprticular photographic dogma, he seems able, at will, to touch out in a new photographic direction. Clearly, his days as a graphic artist push the quality of his work both artistically, and technically, to a level well beyond that which us average photographers can achieve.

Some of the clearest, most vibrant HDR photographs that I have ever seen. Just when you think you've seen it all, he'll whip out a new eye popper that'll blow you away. The use of colours in his pictures always seem to establish a strong mood or feeling. Inspiring.

if there is one person's photo's to be seen on this site, it has to be peter's. He takes photo's of everyday, the unusual, and the funny.

I can spend and hour or so just going through his photo's and at the end i dont know where the time has gone, as they draw you into another world.
