Dartmoor Sailor

Welcome to Dartmoor Sailor

This website is currently under construction.

I sell enlargements of photos taken on Dartmoor in all its colours and moods.

If you are interested in seeing my work please contact me. I would be delighted to discuss any requests for photos. I supply various sizes mounted, framed and on foamex board.


"Around Ashburton" was the original project working on you will find them in 'Presence' East street. Since then I have done studies of Newton Abbott, South Brent and Dartmeet. I am currently doing studies of Chudleigh and The Edgemoor Hotel area. Each study takes longer than you expect to catch the different seasons and the moods of an area. I am always striving to catch the moor in different winds different colours and moods. Movement is a theme I try to capture.

Each year, I brave the elements and discovered the moor in sunshine and during storms, the tripod frequently tries to fly away!

     All the photos have the grid reference of where I stood to take the photo. I love exploring the moor and my photos are often off the beaten track. All accessible with stout walking shoes and Moorcare. I am developing leaflets of walks on the moor that may be circular, or in and out, when the views are so different when walking the other way, or 'phone a friend' walks, which need a car at both ends of the walk, to avoid the return trip back up the hill or a road walk.

Do you have a favourite spot on the moor?  Would you like to commission a photo of it in a different mood and or seasons? Triplicate scenes of the same site work well on boards.

A scene from Dartmoor can fit a space on your wall in your home, however small or large it is.
