I was brought up taking photographs. My Dad developed his own black and white photos and built a studio at home. There's a family story that as a todler I wandered into his studio and drank some developer! Rather than start panicking, my Mum - a chemist and a doctor - simply got me to drink fixer to counteract the earlier poisoning! Who knows whether it's true or not. Either way, I have always been fascinated by taking photos - of people, ideas and places.
|In 1994, I did a post-graduate diploma in Photo Journalism which professionalised my photography. For a few years after that date I co-ran a photo stock library specialising in social issues. Most of the images I sell are to be found at ALAMY, but I am open to commissions to create new work, especially portrait sessions and stock shots. Photography plays a big role in the cookbook I am currently writing containing recipes from my home in Snowdonia.|
