I am a born and bred Mackem who makes cars during the day (and night), then, after family commitments, I find escapism with a camera to take photographs. Based in Houghton le Spring, Tyne & Wear (UK), I am based in an ideal location to explore all that the North-East of England has to offer, including stunning coastline and landscape, as well as some top notch Indian takeaways!

 

My photographic roots sprouted in the early 80's when I received my first SLR camera as a Christmas present. I recall the moment fondly, remembering it as a catalogue purchase with an agreed repayment of £1 per week, to be funded by my mother. The camera was a Russian built Zenith EL model, which was certainly no big hitter in the camera world, but it was enough to start a hobby that continues today. Between 1985 and 2003 there were barren years when I stepped back from photography, but the digital revolution rekindled my interest and I began to take photography more seriously. Gone were the rolls of film and transparency, to be replaced with memory cards and a kit bag full of goodies, including my first DSLR.

 

It quickly became apparent that this second coming wasn't going to be a passing phase, as I reacquianted myself in the technique and art of photography. Learning from magazines, books and the internet, I am completely self-taught. I also enjoy uploading my latest images to ashleycorr.com, which I built myself, with no prior knowledge of web design.

 

I have enjoyed modest success with my photography, including publications such as book covers, magazines, brochures and cd booklets. In addition to this, I regularly contribute to local charities. My photography is a labour of love, not a business.  

 

I feel very fortunate to live in this picturesque part of the UK..."Our coastline and countryside are such an inspiration, every season has something new to offer."
