Welcome to my personal website
I am a large format fine art photographer - lecturer of photography.
I have many years of experience and an attitude of "every day is a school day" allow me to adapt to the constantly changing photographic world. I am an associate of the prestigious Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain.
It is estimated that within the two hundred independent countries of the world there are 6800 different spoken languages, creating a huge expanse of language barriers, hand signals and lost translations.
However, within this mass of worldwide confusion, pictures and photography can still be understood universally. Maybe it’s a cliched point to prove, but personally I think this underlines the concept that a picture can (with no specified language) speak a thousand words to a thousand different people.
I find this idea of global understanding deeply fascinating and it is one reason among many which has propelled me towards the study and creation of photography and the visual arts.
Photography is more than an art; it is knowledge. In my genre of photography, I rely on my intuition and sensitivity coupled with my usage of the camera as a means to document lives, and preserve moments of intense emotion and dignity.
I aim to enhance my viewers awareness and engage them in a visual journey that is also a questioning of our existence.
I want to welcome them into the exploration of our mysterious existance with a spirit of importance, astonishment and hope.
I enjoy collecting and restoring classic vintage cameras and clocks.
