Erith in 1968, I have always been interested in science. As a child a
family friend showed me his Single Lens Reflex (SLR) camera, and
my interest in photography was born. I was given my first 35mm
SLR camera at around 16 years of age and joined the school
photographic club, developing and printing my own images. I went
to university to study Pure Biology (at Imperial College,
London) and Integrated Pest and Disease Management (at Wye
College, London). My photographic interests were satisfied by
making and printing my own experimental result images, light
micrographs and electron micrographs.
working as an Assistant Quality Manager for a pharmaceutical
company, making sterile products, I took my City and Guilds Level
1 & 2 photography courses and have subsequently obtained a Licentiateship to
the Royal Photographic Society. Now I have made the transition
from film based to digital photography and I have the chance to
make my hobby into my business.
I am married to my wife of
18 years, Bridget, and have one son.
