I started my working life in a press agency called Central Press Photos. After learning my trade in Fleet Street, I moved into more commercial and architectual work. I have also spent many a saturday chasing from one wedding to another. These days I photograph anything that takes my eye.

    Nicely framed with the gate Geoff and the black and white processing really gives a look that makes the image just pop out from the screen. Lovely light and textures.

  • Thanks Stuart, I have been looking at this shot for ages, wondering what best to do. I agree, the mono helps it sparkle!
