Designer, photographer, architectural illustrator, art director, writer, musician. Since the mid-1960s I’ve been a practising professional in these creative arts and stopping is not an option. Shape, form, light, context and ironic humour (especially that) are always part of the creative process and the challenge of working with people as opposed to inanimate objects sets the edge.
My influences in photography range from Bill Brandt, David Bailey, Helmut Newton, Ellen Von Unwerth and John Swannell through to Nick Knight and numerous young and irritatingly brilliant exponents (usually female) who are carving a new niche in fashion, nude and erotic imagery.
What’s my style? It varies; hundreds of years of visual influences from art history guarantee a constant reinvention of my perception of ‘what I do’.
I’m amazed by the quality of work on here and inspired by much of it but if your portfolio shows oppression/guns/knives, think that weapons of war are cool or derive pleasure from country ‘sports’ (animal torture) we won’t be doing business.
