Here's the Boring
stuff about Me, but I suppose having reached my first half century by
the skin of my teeth qualifies me to write some kind of biography so here
Born in 1954 in the
heart of Yorkshire with 3 sisters and Photographer Father I grew up with
a great interest in what Dad spent hours and hours doing shut away in
a tiny room at the top of the house.
He taught me all about Photography and dark room skills and I enjoyed
for many years Printing my own work.
Today however in this
digital revolution everything is far easier, though I still use film for
special commissions and types of work, the bulk of my work today is done
I've been fortunate
to spend my life thus far in the arts world, having toured in music for
many years, I found a wife and a home here in the beautiful land of Cornwall
where I decided to rest my weary bones and finally place some roots. Where
better?.. every step along this beautiful coastline brings a new image
and a new inspiration.
The rolling hills and valleys house some of the most evocative secrets
of this mysterious land of legend, and the pure inspiration of living
amongst such a wealth of artists poets and craftsmen brings many a smile
to my face and image to my lens.
The loss of my Father
in 2003 to cancer brought about great changes to me.. I inherited his
photographic equipment and decided there and then to put it to daily use
and keep the images rolling through his eyes and his spirit alive.
Crippled with Arthritis
at the turn of my half Century, and recovering from a heart attack has
made lots of other things impossible for me now but my photography keeps
my senses buzzing, and my spirit flying, and for as long as I'm able I
will continue to bring you these evocative images to inspire and encourage
those who have a simple thought or a sultry daydream.. to you all I say
one thing.. Follow Your dream and let your heart fly free. Life is for
living to the full.
