I trained as an engineer which lead to becoming a marine engineer in the merchant navy. Visiting places around the world I began taking photographs of the various ports of call. Eventually I left the sea and enrolled on a photographic course at a local college. With a City and Guilds qualification I opened a wedding and portrait studio until I was forced to sell it due to ill health. Now I tutor students and supply images to stock libraries.
To be a photographer still gives me enormous pleasure and I hope that people who have purchased my images over the years have derived that same pleasure from them.
