I am completely self-taught and began photography in the late 1970's, first of all borrowing an old film SLR camera and shortly afterwards buying my own. I loved it from the outset and I especially enjoyed being out with my camera walking in the countryside. I even managed to do some monochrome darkroom printing, which was a revelation being able to adjust and improve the tones in the final image, a technique I continue today when processing images on a PC in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop.
In 2008 I switched to digital cameras, initially with a Canon DSLR and more recently with a Fuji mirror-less system, which I find much more intuitive as the controls replicate, to a certain extent, those found on my old film SLRs.
I am primarily an outdoor photographer, prefering to work with natural light and I enjoy experimenting with creative techniques and blur in my images. I also love to photograph the deer in Richmond Park.
After spending 30 years working in I.T., a change of direction means I spend far more time concentrating on photography, to the point that I have taken on some freelance work and I also run workshops for beginners.

If you're interested, you can read the stories behind a few of my images on my blog.
I live in Surrey and can often be found in Richmond Park or wandering in the Surrey Hills and sometimes pounding the streets of London hunting down my quarry!
