Simons interest in photography first began when he was eight years old with his first camera and later when he got his first SLR camera age 13. Simons grandparents lived on a Farm in St Helens, Valencia Farm, which was in the family from 1926 until 2014. With so much wildlife to see on the Farm He was definitely in his element. Simon loves to visit wild places and enjoys what the UK countryside has to offer. Simons favourite places are Snowdonia, the Llyn Peninsula in Wales, the Lake District and Yorkshire Dales, Isle of Anglesey, the Western Isles of Lewis and Harris in Scotland as well as Bardsey Island off the Lyn Peninsula. Simon has also visited and photographed in Georgia, Malta, Egypt, Ukraine, Jordan, and Armenia.
