Now a full time photographer and photographic gallery owner, based in Tynemouth in the north east of England.

The gallery is a combination of my work, vintage prints from the 1880’s onwards and other photographers contemporary works.

Do not Pin my artwork to Pinterest please, copyright theft offends!

You click on the photograph and look.
You make choices based on a thousand experiences.
Then you decide to look deeper or walk away.
Do you turn right, left or turn around?

The picture still sits there,
Yet you are now part of its history and it yours.
That is all photography is,
A click in history.

Each picture is a moment of our history.

I take photographs of moments.
Each moment is special,
Each shot has a personal history to it.
I hope you enjoy the journey of a photographer’s history.

Colour is about shooting what is there, black and white is about seeing what is there with the eye of your soul.

Mission statement: Converting people to black and white photography one by one.. billions of people to go, more of a life time project than a hobby ;)

re the new look RB

confusing, messy and a “how to guide” on where everything is etc would have been useful and it is trying to be way too clever.. but my current profile image in the circle.. lol looks like an image from down James Bond’s gun in the opening credits
