I was born and raised in the suburbs of London, England, and have spent the rest of my life trying to stay away from such places. My career was in outdoor education, first in the U.K. and, from 1975, at the Boyne River Natural Science School, working with students from Toronto, Ontario.
Photography has been a lifelong passion, and since 1998 I have been able to devote more time to my art work. Most of my current photography is with medium and large format cameras on a tripod. This simple equipment forces one to slow down and to consider viewpoint, framing and exposure more carefully
In the studio where there is control of the lighting, I find that shadows are often more important than the highlights.

Some subjects 'demand' colour for information or impact. My choice is usually black and white. This abstraction from reality allows more atention to line, form and texture. In addition, I can carry out all the activities that lead to the final print.

 

Digital work is becoming more attractive since it will also give me control of colour images.
My current avenue of exploration is to combine my long-standing photography of the landscape and environment, with my recent work with the nude.
