I became fascinated with photography at an early age. Looking through the glass plates and early coloured images produced by my grandfather in the 1920’s,and then watching my father develop and print in his darkroom in the 1960’s gave me a deep sense of wonder . How can light and movement and imagination continue to make these wonderful images ? And so the passion for photography was born .
I bought my first camera in Woolworths when I was 7 years old and have never looked back since . I marvel at how technology has changed over a comparatively short number of years and wonder what my grandfather would have made of the modern day digital age.
I love to capture that unique moment in time where the light was ‘just right or the colors were picked out just perfectly against the setting winter sun.I love to combine images to make a unique and imagined world where the beauty of the natural and man made environment can be showcased in all its glory .
I am inspired by my environment in North Norfolk ,but equally enjoy the cityscape when I am in London ,looking at the street scene ,the juxtaposition of buildings , old and new,and the myriad of faces all moving purposefully to their destination .
I am mostly self taught- although probably inspired and guided by my ancestors would be truer to say I am continuing to learn .develop and grow.,discovering new ways of capturing or making pictures . I hope you like my work I certainly enjoyed making it .
