I bought my first proper camera when I was in my late teens. It was a Zenith-E and I loved the creativity allowed by having full control of the imagemaking process. I soon outgrew the entry level SLR and bought and Pentax K1000. Both of these cameras were completely manual, providing an excellent grounding in photography.
In the early 1980s I started taking photos of theatrical productions, building on my interest in capturing people, characters and moods. Over the years I've developed my stage photography skills to include live music and music events, as well as presentations, lectures and awards ceremonies.
My reportage style has also seen me covering parties, proms and functions such as receptions, anniversaries, galas and other family, business and civic functions.
I have also recently expanded my work to include product photography, interiors and food photography.
Over the years I have accumulated an increasing amount of photographic equipment, having an inability to dispose of items I've grown attached to. I currently own 15 cameras, from point-and-shoot film cameras to full frame 35mm digital SLRs.
Based in East Hertfordshire, I am available for a wide range of assignments in Herts, Essex, London and beyond.
