Stephen Spraggon grew up in rural Somerset and spent much of his childhood making pencil drawings, building things out of lego and playing with computers. He later combined these interests and pursued a career as a graphic designer, graduating from the University of Plymouth. It was at this point he first picked up a digital SLR camera and began making photographs, going on to build a strong collection of nature and landscape images. This practice has since been honed through many dawn and dusk outings, capturing pictures in all weathers on deserted beaches or hillsides. Stephen's portfolio now covers many areas of the UK and Europe.
