It’s all about me!
I got my first camera at 10 - a Brownie 127 - still have it and it still works!
I trained as an engineer - then saw the light and exposed myself to a career in photography. I spent many years hiding in the darkroom enhancing and printing photographs. Digital lets me do so much more and I don't miss the smell!
Most of my own photography is inspired by Nature. Our natural environment needs protecting. If my photographs make someone appreciate what we have a little bit more then I’m well rewarded.
Photography for me is my relaxation technique. The view through the camera becomes the space I can focus on for a while and escape from the cluttered world we live in.
It’s a bonus for me when viewers appreciate my images.

Studio and print service open outside the Trail.
