I enjoy landscape photography and use many of my photos to illustrate my articles and some of my books. I have thousands of images available on the Alamy Photographic Agency website. Click on the logo below to see my work.

I’m a BBC WeatherWatcher, uploading photos most days. My BBC WeatherWatcher name is Snapper Simon, and hundreds of my images have been used on regional weather forecasts (usually my local region BBC Midlands Today), but also on national forecasts as part of the BBC’s One o’clock, Six o’clock, or Ten o’clock news broadcasts.
