Ross lives in Yorkshire. His passion for photography grew out of a love of exploring the hills, moors and dales of the Lake District, Yorkshire and Scotland. Initially he spent a number of years using a large format camera learning the importance of a meticulous workflow and balanced composition.

Ross has been a regular contributor to the John Muir Trust Wild Nature Diary and Calendar, and exhibits his work in Yorkshire.

We are fortunate to enjoy an ever-changing seasonal landscape in the UK and this makes for a fascinating place to explore and photograph. Hardly has one season established itself when another is soon upon us. I have spent many hours climbing and walking in Northern Britian and through photography have discovered many unique and beautiful places. From the isolated wilderness of the mountains and coast of Northern Scotland to the rugged moorland on my doorstep in Yorkshire – I love being outdoors, watching the light, and trying to capture the texture and details of our precious environment.

 In my work as a whole, there are 3 key elements: the colour and tones of autumnal flora, the flow and passage of water, and the detailed patterns in mountain and coastal geology. I hope the images represent the sense of calmness and wonder which I experience and will provide inspiration to explore these remote landscapes.”
