I am a huge fan of seascapes and shooting at the coast. For me, nothing beats being up at sunrise at the coast and, as a landscape photographer, I’m forever checking the weather and tides as photography is never far from my mind. I love the vista images and the intimate shots, but as my passion is seascapes, being based in Nottinghamshire can sometimes make things difficult with its location not being right next to the sea… But I never let it bother me because if you want something enough you’ll do whatever it takes to make it happen.

I use LEE 0.6 and 0.9 soft graduated neutral density filters to darken bright skies and balance the exposure in my seascapes.

I also use a LEE polarizing filter to cut through harsh glare on the surfaces of water.

America Faces An Epidemic Of Senseless Gun Violence

I am a gun owner. I’ve been the lead advocate for gun violence prevention here in Massachusetts. In 1994, I realized that 19 kids under 20 years old were dying every day, and 106 Americans dying every day, from firearms. So I built a 250-foot billboard of the Massachusetts Turnpike near Fenway Park and put up messages around gun safety.
