Originally hailing from Billericay, Essex and now back again after 18 years down the road in Hutton, I have been taking photographs for many years, buying my first SLR in 1996, unfortunately after taking a two month trip to Australia, but just in time for my honeymoon!
Having trained as a Guitar maker at the London Guildhall University, I subsequently worked for the Fire Service and Police in admin roles, but it wasn't until I decided to concentrate fully on photography that I felt truly comfortable in my working life.
Turning professional in 2002, I originally exhibited and sold Limited Edition Prints, but as time went on I found photography tuition to be a more rewarding and enjoyable aspect to concentrate on, starting workshops in 2003, and private tuition in 2007. To date, I have tutored over 2,000 people, welcoming my 1,000th workshop participant in 2013.
I use Pentax cameras (see the gear listings here), and quality is obviously very important to me; I use high-quality Pentax lenses, and will usually use a tripod to ensure crisp detail and accurate focus.
