Curriculum Vitae and Published Articles

My photography career spans more than three decades. Over this period and at different times I have specialised in different genres of photography, chronologically being: Medical and Biological Illustrator, Industrial & Commercial Photographer, Advertising Food & Still Life Photographer, Roomset, People, Interiors and Environments Photographer.
It was only recently in early 2016, that the breakthrough to seriously make photographs for myself happened.
I view the world through my camera in a wondrous naive way to make whimsical worlds could come to life. My influences apparently not only the great masters of art and photography but my childhood adventure stories of buried treasure maps, sea and air escapades, ripping yarns all laid out in large fonts - boyhood novels- a door to adventure and excitement. Making photographs with a whimsical narrative satisfies this 'force majeure.'
