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.

Multiple sales

One day I’ll find out how to find out who buys my work but until then thank you to whoever bought a whole collection of greetings cards today. After a bad day it’s a very nice discovery. :)

Merry Christmas

Ok, so I haven’t been too active on here recently but I have noticed that Christmas is coming up so whichever religion you do or don’t worship, make an excuse for getting together with friends and taking a break from the computer screen – I know I will. So to the few friends on here that I’ve had the pleasure to meet and many more that I haven’t, enjoy Christmas peep…

High capacity magazine weapons

Yup, every home should have one. Designed originally for military use, they can wipe out a whole classroom of kids in minutes, zap civilians in shopping malls and cinemas and most of all they make up for your inadequacies. Keep them in a place where your kids can find them to show everyone what a balanced individual you are and for real effect use them as props on photo-shoots. Pure class.
