Biog and CV
I'm a photographer. I take pictures for a living, but I'm also a writer and teacher with a little over 25 years experience spent immersed in photography in all its forms. I love it here - I could stay here forever, just as long as I'm still taking photographs, writing about them or waffling on to someone else about them.
During my early years with the medium, I was lucky enough to serve apprenticeships on cruise ships in the Caribbean and environmental expeditions in Tanzania as well as travelling around Europe shooting stock for various agencies and stock libraries.
I've also spent many years shooting commercial work for a wide range of businesses and organisations, and had my work exhibited in exhibitions from Mexico City to Nova Gorica. Alongside this commercial work, much of my fine art work has been published in magazines and journals and I continue to work with several international agencies including Millenium Images who represent some of my Norfolk landscape work.
More recently, I've been expanding my educational activities by working in schools; most recently undertaking workshops with Creative Partnerships and North Walsham Junior School, and the City of Norwich School, running the Coast Watch Photography Group - read more about it here. I also run my own Courses and Workshops for small group or 1-1 tuition, either at my home base or on location. Teaching and tutoring has benefited my own work enormously and I thrive on the feedback and buzz of a lively class of students and seeing ideas and unique insights develop and grow into finished bodies of work.
In 2005 AVA Publishing published my first book Creative Vision which was well- received and continues to sell well in the UK and abroad. I completed my second book for AVA, Design Principles, which was published in 2010 and I've also been working on a variety of personal projects for publication as well as collaborating with Artists for Climate Change who are active in promoting awareness in sustainable living and carbon emissions reduction in Norfolk schools.
Much of my recent landscape work addresses the creeping threat of rising sea levels on the Norfolk Coastline and I continue to sell images from my fine art landscape and documentary projects as limited edition prints to private clients both in the USA and Europe.
