I have owned a camera, in one form or another, since I was about five years old, and have always had a fascination with the process of photography. The melding of both the technical and artistic disciplines seems to particularly appeal to my senses.

However it's only since I retired in 2004 that I have been able to devote time and effort to this wonderful hobby.

Having spent most of my working life in the computer industry at a technical level I was well placed when the digital age came along. I am particularly interested in the technical challenge of the "Digital Darkroom", and would like to move my photography forward using digital techniques in an artistic fashion.

I have another hobby - woodwork - so I frame all of my images. I really enjoy the creative buzz that comes from planning and taking the photograph, processing, printing, mounting and framing. All my own work, from beginning to end.
