How it all started
My first experiences as a photographer were back in 1987. After receiving a gift of a Praktica LTL 3 from my grandfather who was a keen amateur photographer. I then spent all my spare time relentlessly photographing everything! It was safe to say, I was most definitely hooked!
For a number of those early years I found himself volunteering at every opportunity to take photographs for family and friends. This was greeted from them with high regards and encouragement, it was always commended on my sharp eye and high standard of photography. The support around me and my ever-growing passion for creativity led to a realisation that the only way to keep myself smiling was to take photography seriously and become a full time professional photographer. It is then I decided my hobby was to become a career.
Not just relying on my raw talent and keen eye I decided to back this up by attaining qualifications in photography and studied with the Institute of Professional of Photography gaining a Dip. Pro.Photo. (Inst. P.Photo) with distinction and becoming an approved professional photographer!
After more than a decade of experience using various film SLR cameras, I felt it was time to take the plunge into the world of Digital SLR. With this advancement in technology i was able to realise the productivity, functionality and flexibility that I now had available to me. My passion only continued to grow!
What else do I do
I would consider myself very much an expressive artist, so as well as my passion for photography I also has over a decade of experience designing websites, graphics and logos. I also offer services in both of these fields. This enables me to keep a keen eye on all things creative and gives me the opportunity to combine my skills. My one desire is to give you a fantastic product!
