Dorset as you’ve never seen it before

I have been photographing the night skies of Dorset since 2011. In that time, I have produced two short films – Bridport by Night and Dorset by Night – and a collection of iconic images of the night skies of Dorset, coupled with some of their most famous landmarks.

Dorset’s night skies are rare in their darkness and quality. The lack of any cities or motorways presents a fantastic opportunity for me to document these night skies in some of Britain’s most iconic landscapes.

I also photograph landscapes during the day, mostly in and around my hometown in Bridport, West Dorset.
