I am a Host of the following groups:

  1. PHOTOGRAPHY CRITIQUE & ADVICE GROUP
  2. REDBUBBLE TUTORIAL LIBRARY
  3. THE REDBUBBLE CURATED ART GALLERY

I started being serious about photography back in 1996, but my interest started about 12 years before then when a family friend lent me his Praktika 35mm camera [which had been stolen from a German soldier during WW2.]

As a photographer I predominantly work in Black & White with a preference for old architecture, landscapes and portraiture,

I have travelled around the world photographing locations in:

  1. Canada [Vancouver Island, Highway1, and Golden BC].
  2. East Coast USA [New York, Boston, Maine/New England Region].
  3. West Coast USA [San Francisco, Big Sur, Bryce Canyon, Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Monument Valley, Grand Canyon].
  4. England [London].
  5. Spain [Barcelona, Northeast Coast].
  6. France [Langeudoc/Southeast Region, Cote D’azur].
  7. Italy [Genoa, Florence, Rome].
  8. Hong Kong.

The two people who have been most influential for me in photography are my Aunt Marilyn for inspiring me to buy my first camera, and the Australian Master of Photography – Ruby Spowart for teaching me about Black & White photography.
