My love for photography started at school when our science teacher gave us rudimentary pinhole cameras made of a shoe box and a couple of retort stands  and told to go out into the streets and take a photograph.  I couldn't believe it when I actually took a recognisable photograph, and so the affair began.

 My first real camera was a Russian made Zenit EM; the shutter sounded like a gun going off, but it was a camera, and it was mine. Any pictures that I did take have been lost in the sands of time, but it certainly ignited a passion which has lived with me ever since.

I started my photographic career in a studio in London's West End, photographing Art and Antiques working solely with 5x4 and 10x8" plate cameras using single sheet film; from there I moved into editorial, portrait and fashion photography working all over the word as a photographers' assistant before striking out on my own as a freelance photographer for  a number of years.

After a spell working as a Production Manager on short films and commercials, and a hiatus of several years, I moved out of London to Chichester in West Sussex, UK, where my wife and I designed and built a Boutique Bed & Breakfast which has proved very successful and kept me very busy.  In my spare time, I began learning about landscape photography which was an entirely new discipline for me, while at the same time adjusting to the 'new' digital workflow, and that has been a learning curve all of it's own!

Thank you for visiting my site. 

I hope you enjoy viewing my images; I certainly enjoy creating them.
