I was born in Manchester, England, but have lived in Essex for many years. I am not confined to Essex for work though and am happy to travel worldwide if required.
I have been making photographs for over thirty years. Originally, I took photographs as references for paintings or for graphic design projects. Over time my photography became important as an art form in its own right.
I came to realise that I could be just as creative with a camera, as I could with brush on canvas or as a graphic designer. I began to show my work at exhibitions, galleries, print fairs, restaurants, cafés and anywhere that would have me! Now, years later, my work is pretty much worldwide in one shape or form.
Today, I cover many facets of photography, in fact I'll tackle almost anything - I love the challenge that photography offers. Getting the image right is important to me so I tend to have a plan worked out before a shoot, but as with most things in life, things don't always go to plan and being prepared to adapt to changing conditions is a necessary prerequisite for a photographer as I have discovered many times during my career.
Thank you for taking a look at my work. I hope you enjoy some of what you see.
