It is always a pleasure to hear from people for any reason.
My activities these days are purely personal creative projects - not commercial work.
I give talks on photography and cinema.
I am also happy to consider new photographic or cinema journalism projects, publication, exhibition or other opportunities.
 

About

I retired early in order to pursue various personal creative projects which I undertake on a strictly Not For Profit basis. If any fees are charged, they will only be to recover costs and outgoings only.
I am attracted by various different types of subject matter, styles and genres of photography. I am not concerned with pushing boundaries or immersed in any deep concentrated creative process. A constant companion to me in my everyday life has often been a simple straightforward still camera, either over my shoulder, or in my pocket. I like to "see" a picture, and then just take it as it is in the viewfinder, with virtually no manipulation of the image afterwards. I had two careers in my life, the first working within the audio visual/media production industries, the second working within creative and media education, latterly as a Head of a large Creative Studies Faculty. I am very lucky that at the age of 18, in the late 1960s, I had the opportunity of studying photography, film and video, full time, for three years.  In mid life I was able to study at degree level and upgrade my old HND qualification into a degree in Photographic Media Studies. An appreciation of such modern visual cultures, hopefully sharpens one's perception and enjoyment of the incredible everyday world around us. As a retired active mature person, I am as passionate about photography and cinema today as I was when I was beginning to explore those areas in the late 1960s.
