All the beautiful photographs on this website come courtesy of good friends.

The portraits are by the very lovely and creative folk at Sarah Mason Photography. Their patience, inspiration and all-round excellence cannot be overstated! Please see for more.  

The landscapes of Hebden Bridge and the area are by the extraordinarily gifted Lee Richardson Foster. Reproduced with kind permission of the artist.  

Thanks are also due to Robert Currey at for technical support and expertise while I drafted this website.

And a big thank you to Rebecca Yorke at Pennine Prospects who first talked me through what my website might be for - and who gave me the chance to write my first blog ever and realise it wasn't as scary as I thought!
