I use photography to show something about where I’ve been or people whom I’ve met. As well as trying to see the beauty in a scene or situation, I’m also trying to convey ideas and feelings. My photography is about me and what I do, who I meet and where I go. All my photography tries to be contemporary and creative. I’m resistant to being fitted in to a taxonomy by categorisation such as “travel” or “conceptual” or “nature”. All image-making is political simply by the act of selection and hence exclusion but I am not campaigning for any particular point of view, except to try to see the positives and to live life to the full.
I use 645, 35mm and DX formats plus a handy little digital compact that shoots RAW files. I’ve experimented with non-lens photography - do ask!
I first worked in a monochrome/silver wet darkroom at age 7, helping my Father with scientific prints; I’ve used colour negative materials since age 21 and digital since 2005. I use Photoshop (Adobe) and Photopaint (Corel).

Very much images of our current lockdown and the #stayathome message.
The last “H” in Hammersmith?
Looking at the aerials and satellite dishes on the rooftops and chimneys during an exercise walk around Hammersmith and Fulham. We’ve learnt to ignore them but they are an iconic feature of our vernacular urban architecture.
Christmas Eve isn’t much fun if you’re a teddie made of chocolate or wax.
