I was born in England during the "swinging sixties" to a war hero father and creative mother.
One of my earliest memories is of my father instructing me on how to hold a camera to take a photo of him and my mother at the seashore on vacation. My father encouraged my ongoing interest in his hobby and that started a lifelong journey in photography.
After College (1990) I started my career as a newspaper photographer using 35mm, moving to Nikon digital in 2004. With digital photography my interest in Photoshop commenced and I have continued to update my post production skill set with Photoshop, Lightroom, Muse (website design) and Premiere Pro (video editing)
My involvement in Stock imagery started in 1993 and I have so far amassed a library of more than 50,000 high quality digital images serving photo agencies, travel guides,magazines and businesses worldwide.
Over the years I have had many opportunities to provide photography for the advertising and Commercial industry, Travel & Tourism, Editorial, Local/National News, Websites, Real Estate, Industry
& Environment, Commercial Aviation, Office and Restaurant wall decor.
In 2012 I moved to Sarasota with my wife and in 2016 I earned my FAA Commercial UAV drone Pilot's license operating a DJI Inspire 1 which is perfect for all professional applications.
Whatever your project, call or email me for prices.
