My introduction to photography started innocently enough with the purchase of a small 126 camera from a small chemist shop in the town of Conwy, North Wales while on holiday with my parents at around the age of thirteen.
In late 1991, I went into further education to learn photography which eventually led to a Higher National Diploma (HND) and finally to a BA (Hons) qualification. My studies initially focused on documentary photography, but later I became interested in other areas of photography including advertising, PR, architecture and still-life.
In 2001, i became a professional photographer working in the advertising, documentary and other commercial areas of photography.
I still use a good mix of film and digital formats to create images. I love both formats and see them as two sides of the same coin, with both having advantages and disadvantages. It’s about enjoying the different user experiences and the results of using both mediums. I’ve shot work on most formats from an iPhone through to a large format 5×4 camera. For me, it’s the image that matters and not the equipment used to capture it.
