Shaun is an enthusiast photographer based on the Staffordshire/Shropshire border in Central England. His main areas of photography include the unspoiled landscapes of his home area, which is still one of Britain’s undiscovered treasures, with scenery ranging from the Peak District to the rolling hills of rural West Staffordshire, and the magnificent Shropshire Hills, along with the colour and life along the Shropshire Union Canal.

In addition to this Shaun’s favourite photographic locations include the coastlines of Devon and Cornwall, and further afield, the endless photographic opportunities of Greece and her islands. Shaun has visited Greece over 30 times and has a massive portfolio of shots of the beautiful scenery, coastlines, culture and local life.
