I began taking pictures in the early 1970's using mainly slide film. These days my work is exclusively black & white analogue film photography. Using a variety of formats including 35mm, 6x6 medium format, pinhole and Holga cameras, I look to make an interpretive image, not just record what is in front of the camera. I adopt the same approach with my printing 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.
