Photography was a hobby that evolved into a career. I was a commercial photographer from 1983 to 2014, in 2015 I decided to take a break to concentrate on my fine art work.

Having been through the transition from analogue to digital in the photography world, I decided to return to shooting analogue and instant film mediums. I never crop any of my images, always using the entire frame including the film edges; this allows me to improve my composition skill, I believe that what I see in the view finder should be what the viewers experience.

Most of my images do not show the models’ identity, I want them to represent shapes, forms and lines instead of personality.
