About me

Just a bit about me….

At age 9 I was given a 620 Imperial box camera by a sagacious aunt as a birthday gift. This led to black and white film development in my own darkroom – in a converted outside toilet! Contact prints from large zen like square negatives soon followed… After an apprenticeship, College and University a career as a designer for the print industry followed with a camera as a working tool and a constant companion.

The printing industry computerised in the late seventies and with advent of the Macintosh computers in March 1984 digital production methods took over. Print and photographic workflow became totally digital first with scanners then in the early naughties with digital cameras.

Training photoshop, Illustrator and workflow in TAFF and private colleges part time allowed the development of frelance Industrial, product and botanical photography which continue to form the basis of my practice today…
