Title: Morning Sun near Foolow

Morning Sun near Foolow

Foolow was once a thriving centre for lead mining. Rich veins of lead were discovered along the edges to the north of the village and led to the opening of a number of mines in the early 18th Century, which in turn brought miners and their families into the area.

Artist Bio:
Capturing Moments Across Six Decades

Born and raised in Lancashire and having spent some years living and working in London, I settled in the beautiful Belper area about 20 years ago, and enjoy exploring the huge variety of photographic opportunities presented by the Derwent Valley and the Peak District. 

I first picked up a camera as a toddler, due to my dad’s interest in photography, but my own passion really ignited in the mid-1970s, with a Rollei Flex Twin-Lens Reflex camera, and 120 film. 

From those early days I have moved through Pentax, and particularly Nikon cameras, and from film and slides into the digital era, to develop my skills and learn how best to present my personal perspective on the world.
