I became interested in all aspects of photography in the 1960's. Including processing and developing My own colour and black & white photos.

I achieved a Diploma in Industrial & Scientific Photography in 1970.

My love of the outdoors has always been an adjunct to my love of photography.

I have always carried a camera on my travels to capture an enduring reminder of the wonderful places I have visited.

Recently, I have returned to photographing Birds and Wildlife, and have adapted my equipment to that end.
