About The Artist
I, started my love and passion for photography almost 40 years ago when I purchased my first 35mm SLR camera. There have been many changes to equipment in that time and I started in photography even before autofocus lenses were introduced. At the time, I started with a fully manual camera with manual focus lenses. I have seen some of the great changes in photography. These changes include the introduction of SCAF lenses, Autofocus cameras, APS-C, the decline of film and the rise of digital. I mastered my art and love of photography on equipment that would be seen as archaic now. The one constant that stays true, through it all, is that a good photograph is taken by good photographers and the better you get the less luck or chance get relied upon.
In this new phase of my photographic journey, I am focused on producing images for exhibitions, bespoke pieces as well as photo books. Of course, I am still available for corporate and commercial work but it is the art of photography that is the most exciting aspect of my work.
Over the course of my career, I have had work published in various magazines as well as photographed album and book covers. I am more enthusiastic now about photography than when I first began. I now take and make photographs every single day.
Currently, I am following my passion for Fine Arts Photography which has lead me to produce work for an exhibition that deals with expressing my thoughts and expression on how I see the world. The images that I now produce show an interconnection between light and shade.
