Peak District Photography - AHG Photography

    I originate from Crosland Moor in Huddersfield and formed an early love of the Pennine landscape during regular walks in the hills with my father. Since then I have always been happiest on a wind blasted hilltop, clambering over a rocky outcrop or searching out half forgotten antiquities amongst the heather.

    Graduating from Norwich School of Art in 1991 with a BA (Hons) Degree in Fine art Printmaking, I also hold a BTEC OND Diploma in  Art & Design and am a member of the Society of International Nature & Wildlife Photographers. Following graduation, I have since worked in graphic design as well as commercial photography (including weddings, PR, product and gig photography). I am a Destination Photography Partner for the Peak District and Derbyshire Tourist Board and have contributed images and articles to a number of print and on-line publications, such as Yorkshire Life, Landscape Photography Magazine and Simply Saddleworth.

    My work has always been about the landscape. Not just how nature has shaped it's contours but how human beings have lived and interacted with the land. From traces of prehistoric habitation, to scattered gateposts and millstones, it is easy to forget that many landscapes were until quite recently working landscapes. The people who lived on the land have left their works, stories and names behind for us to find if we care to look.

    Often returning time and time again throughout the seasons, I consider it important to know the locations where I shoot intimately. I research the history and folklore of the areas that I photograph and by visiting locations often, begin to understand how each view is light during each season. To me, landscape photography is about so much more than capturing the scene before you but attempting to capture something of the spirit of the place.

    I often exhibit my work in venues around Yorkshire and the Peaks. My latest news and images can be found on my Facebook page and at my website.
