I am a long-term amateur photographer, having first picked up a camera in the mid/late 1980s - so I very much started out back in the days of film! I became a lot more serious about photography in the early 2000s, completing a series of City & Guilds courses that really helped me progress as a photographer.
I have always mainly shot landscapes and architecture, with a bit of sport thrown in at times, but a few years ago I decided that I wanted to start photographing people, which is why I ended up here.
While I mainly shoot in digital, I have also started using film again, developing my own black and white 35mm, medium format and large format films.
I convert a lot of digital to black and white, but don't generally go in for extensive editing work.
I'm gradually working out what I like - shapes and angles interest me; I like derelict and dilapidated locations; tattoos are interesting; I also like simplicity and clarity.
I'm actually quite flattered that one model said she thought all of my shoots looked different to each other - I'll approach each shoot on its own merits rather than trying to apply the same formula every time.
I'll admit to struggling with the creative side (I'm a logic type not a creative, which is probably why I work in IT), so I do like to work with models who have their own ideas - but I know I can take a good picture.
I'm not hugely active in terms of booking shoots, for various reasons (time, energy, motivation) but do have occasional bursts of inspiration and activity.
