Born in Hamstead London.
I'm a self taught English photographer living in Eastern France for the past 10 years.
I first got interested in photography during my late teens, mainly through my father who was an avid photographer, having work published in various magazines and journals, as well as a number of international salons and solo exhibitions.
I bought my first camera a Zenith EM, and used this to try and get to grips with apertures, shutter speeds and film speeds, which was fairly easy to get to grips with before moving onto a medium format Mamiya C220, but what i really lacked at time was the artistic ability, to tranform what was in my head onto film, and after a while, frustration led to my interest on photography being put to one side.
25 years later, and with the digital age upon us, and the fact that i was working in a photographic studio, the fire was re-ignited.
The fact that i was working with Photoshop on a daily basis and treating images in the office rather than in a darkroom, and a chance visit on the social photographic website Flickr, and a search on the internet led me to three superb photographers, who happened to be working in Black and White, a medium that interested me enormously.
Those modern day photographers being Joel Tjintjelaar, Xavier Rey and Josef Hoflehner.
After buying my first digital camera, a Canon G10 compact, which i used for over a year, i decided to buy a reflex, and again decided to stay with Canon and bought a Canon 550D.
Landscape, Seascapes and Architectural photography are what interest me more than most in conjunction with long exposures, which allows me to convey a certain movement into my photographs.
