About the Book
A photographic journey through old disused slate quarries and mines in North Wales.
I have tried to capture the vast scale of these ventures and the subtle beauty as nature slowly reclaims the old workings.

I took up photography back in 2002, which came about through cycle racing all over Wales and th UK.Even when i was racing i often thought it would be nice to capture some of the stunning scenery i was speeding through,so when i decided to take a break from the sport i bought myself a battered old 35mm and taught myself through trial and error and a lot of photography magazines.In 2004 i made the switch to digital and haven't looked back. My main interest is landscapes, in particular old industry and how nature is slowly reclaiming the derelict remains; but i enjoy shooting steam railways, graffiti, city scapes and seaside/coastal views.
