Stage

A great passion of mine is stage photography, I love the theatre, so a career highlight was to be invited to a photocall at Covent Garden to photograph the legendary Rudolph Nurieyev and Lynn Seymour dancing in La Batadare and Laborintus. This was way back in the early 70s so to get the speed of emulsion required I shot in high speed monochrome, I think the grain adds to the impact of the images.

Venice in Black & White

Venice in Black and White

The monochrome images portrayed here date back to the 1970s and portray a Venice that has disappeared, swamped not by the waters of the canals but by tourists. A portfolio of some of these images are shown here I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed taking them.

Floral

Floral

Every one loves flowers, and I am no exception. I also enjoy growing them to put in front of my camera. A good number of the less exotic blooms shown in this portfolio were pot grown by me for photography. I have a very small garden mostly laid to paving so pots are the answer to get the maximum planting for my shots, they also look good, and can be moved around the garden for visual impact.

Venice in Colour

Venice in Colour

These images, of one of the words most exciting cities were taken during a very recent visit, organised, as a surprise trip by my daughter. A delightful surprise and a great visit. Once again I was blessed with the wonderful light that is typical of that part of the world, and it inspires me to record the beauty and sadness of this unique place.

This portfolio is born of my love hate relationship with the computer. I left my chosen profession behind when digital first appeared, but now I have embraced it with enthusiasm and enjoy every electronic minute. The computer has extended the art of photography far beyond where any one could have foreseen. It has made photography an exciting,and challenging medium to work in.

Landscapes

I like my landscapes to appear timeless, and so I try to avoid seeing anything in the image that will date it, people, cars, etc. I want a landscape to look in 20 years from now as if it had just been photographed. There are exceptions, of course, some times the addition of a person is unavoidable, even essential, as in the boat on a misty River Thames, shown in the portfolio, which was photographed early one morning close to my home

This portfolio is for images that have proved interesting to shoot but do not fall neatly into any of the existing categories on this web site, but I felt were worth showing. Most have stories behind them, as to why they were shot and about the execution of the picture, but, that must be for another time, perhaps if enough interest is shown in the how and why I will consider working on a book later.

The softness of the English landscape has dictated my approach to photography. The delicate light, the rain and mists, all have played a part in moulding me as an artist. Some of the work displayed on this website represents part of that early moulding, the rest has not so much been moulded, as computer generated.
