About Me

I discovered photography at the age of sixteen when I bought a Zenith “E” SLR from one of my best friends at Sherborne School. I was eagerly encouraged by my art teacher Trevor Boyd and I soon began to marvel at just what a camera could do. Since then I and have been fascinated with light and how to capture it. I guess I have had "the click" ever since. I continually look at the world with a my cropping boards in my head. I knew that I wanted to be a photographer from that day and I embarked on a journey that has been fulfilling, exciting and compelling.

I studied photography on both my Foundation Course and then in a 3 year H.N.D at GlosCAT, now Gloucester University in Editorial and Advertising Photography. During this time I learned the fundamental aspects of technical and theoretical photography and practised both studio and location shoots.

My pursuits with a camera have fortunately taken me all over the world and around the UK and I have built up a substantial photographic library some of which are represented on this website.

Of course for many years I shot with 35mm and 120mm film. Wet and Dry areas of my darkroom were clearly defined and I got such pleasure from enlarging and developing my own prints - the magic happened before my eyes. I converted over to digital photography in 2000 - the speed and ease of the digital revolution facinated me. I have been working with this format ever since. I am very familiar with Photoshop and also ACDsee.

I currently use a Panasonic Lumix micro two thirds DSLR, and always carry my Panasonic Lumix TZ70 (just in case). I still use a Bronica ETRSS larger format film camera which combined with my digital cameras meets the needs of all aspects of my work.

I have recently moved to Cheltenham Gloucestershire after 30 years in London. I share my home with my dog - a lively but adorable 5 year old Jack Russell called Poppy who was born blind in one eye.
