My interest in photography started at an early age at school in Dorset. My first camera was a Pentax K1000, a 35mm SLR with all the mechanical operations of a traditional camera of its time. I developed my skills over the years and taking inspiration from some of the best known photographers such as, Henri Cartie-Bresson, the iconic photojournalist of the mid 20th century.
Although not my primary career, I have used photography as a means of escape from the hectic world that we live in, taking images of subjects that interest me. I have been lucky to travel the world and record the moments that have struck a chord in my memory.
More recently I have decided to use my images to craft a secondary career. In September 2007 I was short-listed in the Landscape Photographer of the Year Awards 2007 - Take a view(sponsored by the Sunday Times and the AA). Two images of Battersea Power Station (Ref: C120, C130) were shown at the National Theatre and illustrated in a book.
In November 2009 I exhibited a selection of my images taken over the last 5 years at the Truman Brewery on Brick Lane, East London. See gallery Click to view these images.
In 2010 I was runner-up in the Conde Nast Traveller 'This is London' awards.
