The Kent coastline has a variety of beaches from the marshes on the north Kent coast to the only desert in the UK at Dungeness and its sandy beaches in Thanet to the pebble beaches at Deal and Dover. In this collection of photos there is Minnis Bay, Sheppey, Cliffe, Margate, Folkestone, Dymchurch, and Broadstairs. Once known as the Garden of England, Kent is well known for its hop farms, chalk grasslands and the South Downs as well as the world famous White Cliffs at Dover. With picturesque villages, historic houses and castles dotted throughout the county, there is always something to see. You can walk the banks of the River Stour, the lakes at Sturry, see the bluebells at Kings Wood, follow the historic Royal Military Canal to name but a few.
I am an independent photographer based in Kent, specialising in historic and scenic photographs in my home county. From beach sunsets to historic buildings through to modern architecture, you will find a selection of them all, here. I have been taking photos since 2001. I started with a 35mm camera, taking photographs of historical sites that I had developed an interest in. It wasn’t very long before I moved onto digital photography, often revisiting places I had already been to so that I could get a better quality photograph. Most of these sites were underground, and this presented me with a lot of challenges with regards to lighting and exposure times to get the right photo. As my interest in historical sites continued, I started to travel further to see new sites, always taking my camera with me.
