My love for photography started at school when our science teacher gave us rudimentary pinhole cameras made of a couple of retort stands and a shoe box and told to go out 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 with single sheet film, and then 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. 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 digital workflow, and that has been a learning curve all of it's own!
I hope you enjoy viewing my images; I certainly enjoy creating them.
