As a crop circle videographer for entering his twenty first
year with the circles, Peter has taped more crop formations
than anyone else -- even more than the BBC! Originally
believing the circles were created by angelic entities, he
first made the pilgrimage from America to England in 1992.
That summer he saw the mysterious balls of light in the sky
over Alton Barnes, and had other strange experiences which
convinced him to quit his computer animation job and become
a full-time circle investigator.
Over the years his opinion about what makes the crop circles
changed, however. At first certain that many formations
were too large and complex to be made by people in the
middle of the night, he gradually figured out how they could
in fact be created by teams of dedicated artists with
surprisingly simple tools. He tested the basic methods,
and eventually “deconstructed” even the most complex
designs. In recent years he has become a professional
circle maker paying the farmers for the crop he uses. He
has made several formations for TV documentaries and
corporate logos. [Click

His change of heart has certainly not endeared him to the
community of circle Believers. They view him as a traitor
who has sold out and become part of the Dark Government’s
UFO/crop circle cover-up!
“Most people who figure out how the circles are made just
drop out quietly and pose no problem to the Believers,” he
explains. “However, I’ve stuck around and unfortunately
become a thorn in their side. I didn’t plan it that way --
I was just having so much fun playing detective and making
circles myself, that I couldn’t go away. Besides, when I
started to research the phenomenon my intent was to bring
the truth to the World. The truth turned out to be
something other than what I expected, but I’m still
dedicated to Truth.
“Standing up for my Truth has cost me dear. I lost many
friends, and the sale of my annual videos nose-dived. The
circle fundamentalists have even accused me in UFO magazines
and on the radio of being a CIA agent (!). It’s really
funny -- and even flattering, in a strange, left-handed
“Some people ask me, ‘If you believe the circles are made by
humans, why do you still come here and video them?’ Well,
“Surprisingly there is still a
LOT of mystery —
strange lights in the fields at night, telepathy in the
creation of the designs, circle visitors affected
profoundly, and much more. Just because humans are
flattening the crop, doesn’t mean that there’s no magic
involved. In fact, in a way this just as wonderful -- I
are the ETs!
“But deeper than that, I’m convinced that an esoteric
Muse is working
through many of the artists, guiding their work at night.
You know many great artists, poets and even General Patton
credits the Muse for their inspiration. I think She is an
intelligence that looks out for humanity, giving us gentle
nudges to keep us on the path towards our destiny. That’s
why the designs are so powerful that millions of people have
had their lives uplifted by these ‘spiritual machines.’ They
function like Tibetan mandalas!
“The other, more mundane reason I still love the circles is
because I’m sure that they will be regarded in the history
books as one of the most original and unusual art movements
of all time. Someday I expect to read, ‘At the close of
the 20th century and the dawn of the 21st, beautiful,
authorless patterns spontaneously appeared in the landscape
which attracted a worldwide following. The sacred geometry
of these “Temporary Temples” conducted energy which
profoundly affected visitors emotionally and spiritually,
even causing unexplained
effects. The stunning patterns made headlines every summer,
and people came to England from around the world to see
“That’s how the future will regard this phenomenon.
“I’m proud to have been involved in many ways with this
exciting phenomenon. My video footage has been featured in
television documentaries on four continents. My diagrams of
the designs are in books and on countless T-shirts. My own
crop formations are mistaken for alien communications. And
of course, I’ve documented hundreds of pictures of the
circles on my website.”
We must point out that Peter “tweaks” all of his website
pictures using PhotoShop software, adjusting color and
contrast, hiding ugly walk lines, and sometimes altering
perspective. But he respects the designs of the circles and
virtually never changes their designs.
In addition to pictures of the circles, Peter’s “Rogues
Gallery of Croppies” on this website is the largest
collection of portrait shots of circle researchers and
artists on the Internet.
Peter has stopped making and selling his annual videos, but
his footage of the crop formations, stone circles and the
landscape, from the air and ground, is available for TV
broadcast at a reasonable per-second rate. Individuals
wishing to see his best shots from over the years should
CircleSpeak DVD, which has lots of his footage, as well
as excellent interviews with believers and artists alike.
And his archive of over 200 classic circle diagrams is
available on CD directly from him [Click
