About me ...


A Brief CV

My father introduced me to photography, and the darkroom, when I was about seven years old, and I've been producing pictures ever since.

I became actively involved in club photography in 1979, (as a member of Field End Photographic Society in Ruislip, Middlesex). I gained an Associateship of the RPS with traditional darkroom monochrome prints, and a Fellowship with digital colour prints.  I serve on the RPS Licentiateship panel, the Visual Art Associateship and Fellowship assessment panel, and provide advice at distinction workshops.

A busy national PAGB judge, and popular lecturer, I have visited more than 200 different camera clubs, and judged many regional, national and international exhibitions. (See the Judging & Lecturing page on this website).

I earnt a Distinction of the PAGB with colour transparencies, and was pleased to receive an APAGB award for my services to photography.  I have also had success and gained awards in international exhibitions while earning my AFIAP and subsequent EFIAP distinctions.

Now retired from working as an air traffic controller, I am a member of Amersham Photographic Society.  Since 2005 I have supported Paul Foley FRPS with Spirit & Vision Landscape Photographic Workshops.  A recent initiative is Photo Knowledge, working with Leigh Preston FRPS, offering photographic tuition to camera clubs, groups and societies.
