Welcome to my site which, you will find, covers a wide range of subjects, many of which become the subject of my editorial and photographic work.

For the record, I'm a freelance journalist, photographer and blogger. My work has appeared in many magazines including Canals, Rivers + Boats, Towpath Talk, Walk magazine's website, Waterways World and many others. I've looked at, sailed on, and written about boats of all kinds and sizes. From cross-channel ferries to inflatables on rivers and lakes, however, for some time now my main focus has been on the inland waterways. An area that mixes development with tradition - unusual to say the least!

Other areas of interest include the use of technology to tackle the environmental problems we are now experiencing. Ev's, electric boats and sustainable boating together with more general environmental subjects all interest me.
