Born in the north east in 1956... still based in the north east. I wanted to take reasonable snaps of memorable moments. When I bought my first camera — back in the mid eighties — it was never my intention to become a professional photographer. A local photo agency gave me my first job...with one proviso. If I did the job well there would be more work — if I didn’t...there wouldn’t. Studio and Press work have been my main source of income ever since. Landscapes are a labour of love.
