I have had a lifelong interest in Photography. My first published image was in the Evening Standard when I was 13 years old and I have since spent my life working in the industry as a professional photographer and lecturer.
I trained at Regent Street Polytechnic (now known as the University of Westminster) and have subsequently been awarded Associateships of the British Institute of Professional Photographers and the Royal Photographic Society, gaining several major awards in photojournalism, portraiture and illustrative work.
Photography is a very powerful medium and means of communication, borne out by my highly acclaimed fund raising exhibition of photo-journalistic images of Karen refugees in a Northern Thailand camp: ‘Forgotten Refugees’ was shown in the crypt of St.Paul’s Cathedral, highlighting the plight of these displaced people.
Now based in Castle Cary, Somerset, I continue my career as an independent photographer and lecturer, producing my own personal work which I hope you enjoy.

I am pleased to be participating in this thriving annual and am particularly grateful to Diana and Richard Scott who have kindly offered the use of the conservatory at Cole Manor as my exhibition space during the art weeks.
