My interest in astronomy started decades ago as a schoolboy. I have been fortunate enough to transform a hobby into my profession. Harnessing the light from distant stars does have its problems, light pollution, planes & satellites can all make my work challenging. I aim to introduce to the eye images that are becoming increasingly hidden from sight due to the effects our way of life has on the night sky. Some of my work has been published by BBC Sky at Night and Astronomy Now magazines. For me though the pure naked enjoyment of knowing that a star's light may have taken thousands or even millions of years to reach my camera lens as I close the shutter, still thrills me now just as it did all those years ago.
