About me

Although I have always been a photographer, I've undertaken many roles in still and moving image production, from my early experience as art director for tv commercials to  photo editor for the publishing industry. The thread linking these roles has been enjoying  the teamwork and creative collaboration that transforms the ethereal ( emotions or ideas) into something viewable, tangible, almost real. As a photographer and artist I'm fascinated by light and image creation, and although the techie side of me lavishes great attention to lighting and sharp detail,  the most important thing remains telling a story. A successful image for me conveys a slice of time, stirs emotion,  transports the viewer in a visual narration that can be complex and layered like a great portrait or immediate like a news photograph, but it always must remain intriguing, there is nothing less endearing in photography than reproducing the obvious.
