I started taking pictures in the late 60's using the family Kodak Instamatic camera, graduating in the early 70s' to 35mm colour slide film with a Zenith E. Today I work exclusively in black & white analogue film photography using both 35mm and 6x6 medium film formats, using a variety of cameras including pinhole and Holga. My aim has always been to try and make an interpretive image, not just recording what is in front of my camera lens. I take the same approach into 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.

I regularly give print talks to camera clubs and photographic societies in Wales and further afield into South West England.
