I have had a lifetime interest in photography and became a professional freelance photographer some years ago working on commercial assigments and work for Photo3. My first commercial work was photographing the entire range of products for the catering hire company Berry Nicholls & Parsons to update its website.

The gallery albums show a range of my work and many are linked to google albums. The google albums were initially set up to publicise the many designer collections photographed at the Alternative Fashion Week in Spitalfields Market ,London E1.

My wife and I love to tour France and I am gradually adding details of Caravan Tours to albums on the website.In my Gallery click onto the 'European Caravan Tours and Self Drive Tour of California, for more details.

Another favourite holiday destination for us is Barbados for which there is another album. Tobago is another favourite of mine for birds.

Photographs from the website are available for sale. They are usually sold unmounted but can be mounted and framed by Amethyst Framing ( click on Links for contact details and their website)

My equipment all comes from the Canon Professional range. The main camera I use is a Canon 5D Mk2 Digital SLR with a L Series 24 - 105mm lens.I have a range of other L series lenses available for different types of work. Images are taken in RAW format to retain the maximum amount of print data to enable subsequent manipulation in Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop to be undertaken without loss of detail. Images for work undertaken are usually supplied on CD or DVD as high specification JPEG images to enable customers to use them on their own websites and computers or to arrange their own printing.

I have now started to use the camera on my iphone 7 and have produced some excellent results with it.
