Portrait and Landscape Photography in Devon

I’m Mike and I’m a photographer living in South Devon.

I specialise in  portrait photography and documenting the amazing landscapes around the southwest.

Ever since I was young I have been drawn to the outdoors. As I’ve grown up in the area I started wild camping and finding the best views of the rural countryside that I could.
