An Endless Journey

Photography is the most wonderful craft and one that I have enjoyed for over 30 years.

My photographic journey started at a very young age with a simple 'point and shoot' 35mm film camera used mainly to record family holidays. Photography became a more serious hobby through my teenage years as it helped record images from visits to local airports and annual airshows. By the time I joined the Royal Air Force in 1986 I had grasped the "nuts and bolts" which allowed me to develop more creative awareness, something I'm still working at today. As part of an evolving interest I added a Medium and then Large format system to the equipment list throughout the 90's as interests extended to travel & landscape work.

I love working in the landscape with my 4x5 and the inherent limitations it brings yet greater rewards it yields for a patient and meticulous approach. Likewise, my digital equipment affords speed, convenience and technlogical advantages that are hard to beat when it comes to aviation, wildlife and commercial work. Nevertheless, the gluttony of new photographic equipment available today can only ever serve as a facilitator to a creative vision. Certainly, my attention continues to centre around developing my own creative vision, something I don't expect to ever end.

I became a Licentiate of the Royal Photographic Society in 2004, an Associate in 2010 and Adobe Certified Expert in Photoshop/Lightroom in 2012.
