MBE LRPS MCMI
A travel photographer based in the UK, who loves to sail and has a keen interest in aviation and cooking.
I was first lent a camera for a ski-ing trip in 1967 and have been taking photographs ever since. I joined the Royal Air Force in 1972 as an Engineering Officer and started travelling around the world, each time capturing images as I went. After retiring from the RAF in 1991 I continued my love of travelling and photography.
Since 2006 I have been improving my equipment and taken training to further understand my craft. I also invested in understanding digital manipulation and the hours I spent in the darkroom in the old wet film days was replaced with the creative skills needed for digital adjustment and manipulation.
In 2014 I was awarded a Licentiate from the Royal Photographic Society. I have also been fortunate enough to have had my images published in several books particularly in the field of military aviation.
I live in the UK and I have three passions in my life, travel, sailing and aviation. I travel extensively capturing images as I go. My photographic business started on a local basis in remote Norfolk, England and then developed into a global presence with imagery covering Europe, North America, Asia and Oceania.
I also provide a bespoke service for small business looking to find a cost effective way of obtaining imagery to promote your brand and services across all your PR, marketing and social media needs. Normally images are captured in a time pressured studio shoot that offers little in the way of originality, and does little to convey your brand message. As a small business owner myself, I understand the need for more unique portraits that encapsulate your personality and celebrate the real you.
I bring a relaxed style of working that puts the most nervous of subjects at ease. Instead of pressured studio shots I’d rather spend time in your company to understand it better, and to capture the most powerful images. I work closely with my clients to understand who you are, what your business is about, and what kind of setting will best suit your brand, producing a portfolio of images for websites and brochures, including editorial style images of products and facilities.
