black and white


A coco leaf chewing alpaca shepherd with the most photogenic face. He spoke no words, but his face did the talking. This photo was taken just after mid day and the sun was hot. The altitude meant kept the temperature cool but sunny.


Machu Pichu - a truly remarkable place. These stones were hand placed, hand carved and built with expectational precision. The long journey to the top was worth it. The green of the surrounding mountains, with the grey clouds made for an evocative experience.


The huge innocent eyes of this little fella will always remind me of a little market on the outskirts of lima. Brightly coloured clothes, food stalls and hundreds of kids roaming free. They have no idea of the world they will grow into.

more coming soon

I am in the middle of updating this site with thousands of new photographs from my latest expedition. Sit tight, more are on the way.
