Biog & Exhibitions

My first photograph was taken when, as a pupil at an infant school, we were taken on a day-trip to London. On top of the Great London Fire Monument I was able to shoot areas such as Tower Bridge, Tower of London and other well known places. It was enjoyable pressing the shutter button and, at a later stage due to it being on film, wonderful to see the photographs. To coincide with my 21st birthday, in 1984 I bought myself a Ricoh XR7 camera together not only the 50mm lens, but so too a 35mm and 70-200mm lenses. My style of photography has varied, therefore to improve my artistic interests in 2010 I started a Bachelor of Arts in Photography course at the University Campus Suffolk (UCS).

This biog shows my progress and will be updated, especially up and coming exhibitions together with achievements.
