Ian says this about his photography.
"My interest in photography started when I was in my teens and I looked through the photos my Father had taken when he was stationed in Northern Europe with the army. I really developed this as a more passionate pursuit about 6 years ago when my wife told me I should get a hobby! I went and bought photo magazines for a year and completed whatever project was in each issue – for example there was an article on how to get a feathery effect to waterfalls – I spent the day in North Yorkshire doing just that until I got it right.
I noticed about three years ago that there seemed to be a niche in the market for photos of Huddersfield landmarks for sale – my cards now sell in Armitages Garden centre and at Dont Forget in Marsh. I’ve been lucky enough to win a few competitions including being the Yorkshire winner of a ‘Photography in the Park’ competition and managing to get a photo in the Landscape Photographer of the Year book. Locally, some of my images hang in two old peoples homes, one of the wards at HRI and the crematorium entrance. I sell my photography in frames and on keyring's as well as the cards at several craft fairs and market stalls throughout the year but especially in the run up to Christmas . Despite the images on this page showcasing several areas I am passionate about photographing Huddersfield having been brought up here - Bruges is my favourite place to photograph but home comes a close second!!"
