I have been involved in making photographs since 1978 and I am primarily self taught.
Photographers Alfred Stieglitz, Edward Weston, Minor White and Aaron Siskind are major cornerstones however painters Mark Rothko, Robert Motherwell, Howard Hodgkin and Gerhard Richter are influential in my image making
From 1980 until 2007 for the most part I worked in the landscape genre responding to areas where there was evidence of human activity.
In 2008 the discovery of health issues I took the decision to forgo the traditional darkroom and adapted to digital capture. This enabled me to pursue confidently colour imagery, competently.
I pursue colour opportunities in the urban mainly, photographing to allow an area or situation to unfold.
I am a co-founder of DIP’s and have enjoyed exhibiting nationally in group and solo shows. My work is in collections in this country and abroad. I have published books ‘Paris six days one summer’ through Blurb and ‘Surfaces & Photographs privately.
