I am a photographer based in Watford and have been taking pictures for over 20 years. My interest in photography stretches back to my schooldays, when a friend started demonstrating what he could do with his Praktica SLR. I soon got my own as a Christmas present, and have never looked back.

Closely linked to my technical background is my fascination with patterns, both natural and man-made, and I love creating photographs where the two interact. I am also keenly aware of colour and light, both in their presence and their absence, and the differences between how a camera sees the everyday world and how the human eye does.

As a photographer, the works I create can only ever be recordings of things already in existence or created by others; however by applying my eye for a detail here, or a pattern there, I hope to be able to show people the most common everyday object in a new light.
