My Profile

Personal Data:
Born in 1961; parents working class; grew up in Royal Leamington Spa in Warwickshire.

Career:
Given a box camera when aged about 4 or 5. I still own this. I enjoy shooting with vintage cameras. I enjoy shooting using a digital art form. Have enjoyed a variety of jobs such as that of an industrial contract window cleaner, to retail and tele-sales, financial services and now as a photographer full time.

My Past:
I worked within the financial services sector for almost 20 years advising personal and corporate clients.

Difficulties:
From 2009 – 2012 I have learned what it is to undergo life challenging events that include: minor form of cancer; brother’s suicide etc…

My aims:
I have a passion to create images that last, tell a story, and make people stop, and think. I have also showcased my work in competitions becoming a successful winner on several occasions.

Inspirations:
At art school I learned about the master sculptors, painters and photographers.

I try to follow in the great tradition of recording form, movement, and the use of light is key to all of my work.

I believe that no art form has a set of rules that should be adhered to.

My particular inspirations are: Michelangelo; Da-Vinci; Rodin; Turner; Matisse; Monet; Manet; Picasso; Man-Ray; Brandt; Vivien Mair.
