About me

I would describe myself as a self taught, fine art photographer and I became interested in photography back in 1998 when I got my first SLR, but didn’t really know much about the technology side. I was based in South Korea at the time for my main job, but on my return to the UK in 1999, I joined Washington New Town Camera Club, and it was the encouragement I received here that made me continue and learn my darkroom skills from a fellow member.  I was awarded “Photographer of the Year” in my first full year at the camera club in 2000. This accolade from my fellow photographers really gave me the confidence to continue.  My first love in photography was always black and white, and once I saw my first image appearing out of nothing on a blank piece of paper in my darkroom, I was hooked. 

Since then I held my first solo exhibition documenting Newcastle-upon-Tyne and I become a member of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) where I  obtained my Licentiateship of the Royal Photographic Society (LRPS) in 2002. My work has appeared in several books, magazines and two exhibitions by the RPS and in 2010 Whilst living and working is China, I publish my book, a different way of life, documenting street life around Asia. 

These days, my darkroom has gone and I work mainly in digital, in both colour and black and white. All the images you see here are available for download or purchase. Just visit my shop or drop me a message.
