I have been a dedicated image-maker since taking a short course in photography, using a borrowed camera, at school, when I was 16. I have lived and worked through the radical changes from darkrooms and chemicals to pixels and electronics. Digital has now enabled what I always believed that video, film, still images and designs are all aspects of the same thing: capturing and communicating a viewpoint and a vision.
I have been privileged to do work across a wide range of images and image creation: print and publishing; event photography; image-rich presentations; film-making (especially in dance and performing arts); portraiture; commercial photography; nature and macro photography; astrophotography and a range of visual design.
I have always been a “semi-pro”: using skills in my main job and taking on occasional commissions as well as doing favours for people and contributing time and know-how to causes and missions I believe in. I have my own professional gear for photography and video.
