I have been involved with photography since the early 1970's. After a very brief flirtation
with colour slides, I started using black and white film and began printing my own work. Over the years I have used nearly all of the available conventional B&W films, including Kodak Trix, Ilford HP5, FP4, Pan F, Fuji Acros,etc, and Kodak Infra-red film.
With my work I strive to make an interpretive image as opposed to just recording what is in front of the camera. I take that approach through into the darkroom with my printing, 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.
