Photographically, my main passion is street photography, and I am fortunate to be able to indulge this mainly in London, one of the world’s great cities. I am also becoming increasingly interested in portrait photography and photographing performing artists.
My photographic influences include: Henri Cartier-Bresson, Helen Levitt, Harold Feinstein, Sir Don McCullin, Joel Meyerowitz, Martin Parr, Jim Marshall, Annie Leibovitz and David Bailey, amongst many others.
I was born and raised in south-west London; both sides of my family are rooted firmly in Fulham. After graduating from Trent Polytechnic (now Nottingham Trent University) in the late-1970s, and a period of years living and working in Nottingham, I returned to London in the mid-1980s, eventually settling with my wife and two daughters in Surrey.
My interest in photography developed (if you’ll excuse the pun) as I approached retirement, and progressed through local adult education classes and membership of Guildford Photographic Society. I achieved my Licentiate of The Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain in 2020 and became an Associate of The RPS in March, 2022.
