Hi, I'm Austin

I'm a photographer

I got my first SLR Camera when I was 15 and photography, along with drawing, has always been one of the backbones of my artistic practice.

Over the last few years I've been studying mushrooms and fungi and that's really given my photography some purpose and focus. I'm working on a feild guide to the mushrooms in the Mole Valley.

Below is few from my local area, including the excellent Hannah Peschar Sculpture Garden, down the road in Ockley.
