While walking on a beach on Rottnest island Australia, I took some pictures of a light house with my venerable old Zeiss Ikon film camera and then it struck me. I might somehow be able to earn a living as a photographer. I moved back to the UK in 1999, studying photography at London College of Communication, and at Paddington College.
I gave up an ambition to run my own restaurant & coffee business (who knows where that would have lead me) and since 2003 I’ve been working professionally.
Photography plays to my inquisitive nature I get to meet lots of interesting people and be my own boss, and Despite the ubiquity of digital images I still have a romantic view of photography.
I’m committed to reducing my carbon footprint and where ever possible I travel to jobs in the greater London area by bicycle, its also faster and more reliable.
