Photography has been a hobby of mine on and off since a young boy, from my junior school days of developing black and white prints at lunchtime in a make shift darkroom. I had my first SLR as a teenager (still 35mm film in those days) and I enjoyed experimenting with lighting, angles and exposures getting mixed results. Then I transferred onto digital during the 90’s and have had a range of cameras…Pentax, Nikon, several Canons and now Fuji. For many years I chose not to acknowledge my friends comments and encouragement about my photographs, eventually after much cajoling I had some printed onto canvas and had them exhibited, no one was more surprised than me when they sold.
Originally I trained as a draughtsman in the old fashioned way using paper and pencils, this instilled in me a love of perspective and consequently a tendency towards being very critical of artists who can’t get the perspective right...a good painting can be ruined by bad perspective!! I enjoy landscape photography, but also more recently portraiture.
My Photoart can be purchased directly from me
either as a mounted print, canvas or blank greetings cards.
All the inks I use are guaranteed for at least 100 years, they are gallery archive inks which ensure vibrant colours and resistance to fading by light. The canvases are mounted on genuine 38mm gallery stretcher frames, these show the photos off to their best and I am happy to take on individual commissions as well. All my pictures are LIMITED EDITIONS and will be individually signed and numbered.
