I started taking pictures in the late 60's with the family Instamatic camera graduating in the early 70s' to 35mm colour slide film with a Zenith E. Today my work is exclusively black & white analogue film photography using 35mm and 6x6 medium format film, and a variety of cameras that includes pinhole and Holga. I always try to make an interpretive image, not just recording what is in front of my camera lens. I take the same approach in the darkroom, where I try to create images that are suggestive rather than descriptive.
Since the early 1980s’ my work has regularly been accepted in national and international salons, and in 2000 I was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society (FRPS) in the visual arts section.
