Originally a designer, I now channel my creative energies into photography.
I still prefer monochrome imaging for its expressiveness but since leaving the darkness for the lightroom I now work in colour as well.
The essential element to my work is travel and, together with Sue O’Connell, my wife and fellow photographer, we try to visit countries on the brink of change. Some such as Libya and Syria are now suffering agonies we couldn’t possibly have guessed at. Others, Myanmar and Mongolia, still retain strong cultural traditions despite historic upheavals.
I am an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society, and a member of Crown Monochrome Group and Bristol Photographic Society. I am reluctant to compete in the world of club competitions and much prefer to exhibit my work as prints in solo or group exhibitions. Recent venues have included Centrespace, Bristol, The Mall Galleries, London and RPS headquarters, Bath.
As a team, Sue and I give talks on our travels, combining prints and DPI, which are suitable for club evenings. We are also accredited judges, preferring to judge as a team.
