After being a London based professional photographer for 35 years, I recently relocated to Liverpool; much of my work is still in London. I have 35 years experience in many areas of photography. During this time I have won a number of awards; the latest being a ‘Long Service Award’ from The British Institute of Professional Photography, of which I have been a member for over 34 years. I have also been an NUJ member for the same period of time. A selection of my work is in the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery, and the Jewish Museum, and The British Library in London, along with a few private collections.
My work covers a gamut of areas; Editorial, Street-photography, Headshots, Portrait, PR, Corporate and Photojournalism throughout the UK and overseas, supplying images for magazines, brochures, press releases, websites, and annual reports in the UK and abroad. My work has been used for book covers, along with appearing in The Guardian, Observer and The Independent magazines and other national newspapers. I also do personal injury and legal photography.
Along with doing freelance photography work, I teach photography. I was seasonal tutor at Hampstead Garden Suburb Institute for 9 years, and for a many years at Blake College and other institutions. I run my own workshops, along with mentoring and coaching photographers just starting out, or those who are much more experienced.
My clients include, Academy For Chief Executives, Ella Forums, PEP Project Managment, Pizza Hut, Skills For Care, USDAW, The Cooperative Group, The Consulting Consortium, National Market Traders’ Federation, Romain Coleman Solicitors, Tidings Kompaniet Publishing, Insight PA and a number of PR and Marketing companies.
It’s important for me to do personal projects, which tend to be documentary or reportage based, either using black and white film or shooting digital and as often as not shooting with my Leica Monochrom or Leica M10 cameras. Life outside photography includes cycling and walking my dog, who’s a miniature poodle, whom I’m sure thinks he’s human – my wish is to truly know what he is thinking.
