My mission: to show off the natural and architectural beauty of Britain to the world.

DSCF1082 copy.jpg

Born in 1983, raised in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire, Ian has been steadily moving further and further north throughout his life and can now be found in the historical town of Kendal, Cumbria, aka the "Gateway to the Lakes".

Ian has always displayed some sort of artistic and creative streak but it manifested in different ways: first by pencil sketching as a kid, then as music via a multitude of instruments (but eventually drums) throughout his teens and early 20s. 

In 2012 he bought his first ever "proper" camera, a Nikon D60. He soon went on hiking adventures with his buddies, using the trips to get to grips with his new toy. What started as a small hobby to get away from city living soon turned into a full-blown obsession with one simple aim: to show off the natural and architectural beauty of Britain to the world.

If you wish, you can check out his old site to see the development of his older work.

P.S. It feels weird to talk in the 3rd person.
