For 35 years I’ve worked in the visual arts as a branding designer, typographer, art director and photographer. The last ten have seen me mainly behind a camera, or planning settings and ideas. Developing low light photography has been one of my main enthusiasms of recent years, working with my friend and inspirational British artist, Bruce Munro, who has encouraged me along the way.
I have my father to thank for my early interest in photography. As an Army Air Corps pilot and keen photographer his portrayal of WWII army flying is in the Imperial War Museum today. Childhood years were spent with him exploring black and white film and that magic is not lost for me in the digital arena, where the understanding of hand developing craft still forms part of my method and thinking in post production.
