"Pictures can tell a story, create understanding, lift a heart and engage our emotions"

Back in the Seventies I did commercial photography in my home city of Manchester.  Marketing Communications and Corporate Relations then seduced me away for 35 years  (It was better money!).
So when retirement came along I figured that I would need a hobby and I decided to try to become a photographer again .... but this time only for the pure enjoyment.  And now in Gloucestershire.
Most of my photography involves people.  Many of the images will attempt to elicit an emotion.  Sometimes it works, sometimes not.  If you stroll through the genrés you’ll get a feel for what I like to shoot. And you'll find the majority of my individual ideas in the Project Galleries. Hope that you enjoy.

COVID PROJECT

EARTH : WATER : FIRE :: LIGHT

During the Covid pandemic I wanted a project that I could add images to as well as some new ideas on an ongoing basis. And, given that I needed to shield for 6 months, not to have to leave the house.

It started with vegetables grown in our organic garden - which need earth and water to grow. It developed with the addition of fire which is needed to cook.  Then the challenge of using just one light to create an image that might be worth looking at twice. Kept me busy. It’s still a bit of an ongoing project.
