Troy Pointer is a highly accomplished photographer based in Winscombe, Somerset. His knowledge of the local area has enabled him to capture some incredible moods of an ever changing environment.

His work has been featured many times for the backdrop of the BBC Points West weather forecasts. Meteorologist and weather presenter Richard Angwin commented that 'Troy has been a regular contributor to the photographic backgrounds used on Points West weather for several years. He has submitted a large number of high quality images which have managed to capture the atmosphere of the West Country and its weather. His work is always of the highest standard'.

He has built a passion for capturing sunsets and scenery not only in Somerset and around the UK but also in East Asia. His techniques enable him to capture the rich colours of the landscape without the use of filters and little interference from image enhancing computer programs. His work has been featured in several magazines including Digital Photographer, Digital Photo and Practical Photography as well as news services such as Weston Mercury. Troy has also won several photographic competitions. His work is often bought to help furnish offices and businesses around the country as well as people wanting a 'work of art' for their homes.
