As an amateur photographer with not enough time to turn my hand to painting the camera and lens provides a more immediate means of creating images.
I buy a lot of books of other peoples work and study their techniques and styles and use them as ideas so I can "see" my own pictures in what is around me. In particular, Joel Meyerwitz, William Eggleston, Martin Parr, Saul Leiter, Stephen Shore, Peter Fraser... The list goes on...
I'm currently interested in photographs in the urban environment and street photography. I prefer colour photography and look to capture compositions from the urban environment using natural and man made colours. Ive produced a few photography books which are available for purchase direct from the manufacturer.

Thanks for looking at my work
