I am an English astrophotographer residing in Shropshire. My interest in amateur astronomy started at around the age of 13, when I bought my first telescope. I have had a strong passion for the cosmos since a very early age and this followed into my adult life. In 2007, I went on to obtain a BSc (Hons) degree in Astrophysics at Keele University and on many nights, could often be found in the university observatory.
Since then, my interest in astrophotography continued to grow rapidly and has become an obsession. I carry out most of my astrophotography from my rural Shropshire home, where I am fortunate enough to have dark skies. I have obtained various awards including NASA Astronomy Picture of the Day (APOD), Amateur Astronomy Picture of the Day (AAPOD) and various Astrobin Top Picks. I am also a Fellow (FRAS) of the Royal Astronomical Society.
In addition to astronomy, I have a strong passion for golf, aviation and electronic music. Day-to-day, I work as a pilot and also run a brand designing modular music synthesizers.
Thank you for looking, I hope you enjoy my work.
