Jon Sparks | About
I am a professional photographer and writer specialising in landscape and outdoor subjects, and based in Lancashire, England. You can also find me on Facebook and Twitter.

I’m passionate about walking, climbing and cycling, but my enthusiasm encompasses almost any activity that doesn’t involve the infernal combustion engine. In the last few years I’ve been ocean sailing, snorkelling, kayaking, canyoning and cross-country skiing as well as trekking, scrambling and climbing. I have also ridden bikes everywhere from the boards of the Manchester Velodrome to the wilds of New Zealand. There's now an ebook about my experiences mountain biking in NZ.

I also write extensively about photography. I produce Nikon camera guides for Ammonite Press and for many years wrote a regular photography section for Outdoor Enthusiast.

I have travelled and photographed in Pakistan, New Zealand, Canada, Morocco, and Australia, as well as most countries in Europe. I supply images to the global libraries Corbis and Alamy as well as meeting clients' needs directly from my own library. Images on this site are available for licensing, but there are many more where they came from: please contact me if there's something you don't see.

I also lead photo workshops on a variety of subjects.
