I guess that subconsciously I have always been interested photography but for many years I didn’t know it. Prior to 2003 holidays usually involved me taking lots of images to be followed by extreme disappointment when the images came back from the printers. I was a master of poor composition, blurry and poorly exposed images, uninteresting subject matter and the rest of it..
All this changed largely thanks to my wife Frances, who in 2003 suggested I attend a Saturday morning Digital Photography course at a local school where the tutor, Judy Payne, encouraged me by saying that she thought I had some talent and “good seeing eye”. When the course finished I joined Colchester Photographic Society and two years later also the Ipswich and District Photographic Society; I remain a very active member of both to this very day.
In 2008 I also became one of the founding members of The Suffolk Monochrome Group, whose interest is the promotion of the monochrome image via exhibitions and entry into national competitions.
In 2009 I applied for and was delighted to gain a Diploma status with the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain.
My photographic interest and style lies very much in the making of images having a pictorial bias, whether wholly created “in camera” or subsequently helped along in the post capture digital process.
Whilst I have undertaken a reasonable number of commissions, especially architectural, interiors & weddings, this site is aimed at sharing with you some of my personal work and my photographic passion.
Any time that you are able to spend looking at my work is greatly appreciated, as is any subsequent contact that you may choose to make.
