Iím an amateur photographer living in Northamptonshire and have been interested in photography for the past 20 years, but only since going digital have I started to have pictures published and sell prints and greetings cards.

One of the main subjects of this site is local cycle racing, mainly with the 45 Road Club, but also covering other clubs and local open events.

The pictures will be rotated on a regular basis as I go to more races throughout the season, so keep looking, if I donít manage to catch you at one event, Iíll be at the roadside trying again soon!

I hope you enjoy the site and if you have any comments on the photographs, or any other aspect of photography, please feel free to contact me.
