. . . because I could be coming to your wedding!
I'm fascinated by the natural world,......
.... animals, the sea, rivers, mountains, desserts and jungles.
I hope our children also have the opportunity to see, feel and understand the true worth of our natural world before it all dissapears.
The early years
My parents fashion sence was permanently anchored in the 19th century. Luckily when older and attending school I managed to convince them I really did need to look like the other school children.
I grew up playing a lot of sport, fishing, listening to Radio Luxembourg, playing guitar and 'making things' in my fathers workshop.
In my teens I enjoyed playing football, tennis, gymnastics, badminton and fencing (foil/epee not hedges). My league football and county tennis days are now over, however I still play several hard sessions of badminton each week and some tennis whenever time and weather allows.
I met and married my lovely and understanding wife Julie over 30 years ago and our two offspring (Thomas and Amy) have long since fled our nest.
Love photographing weddings....
As a teenager I enjoyed painting in oils and found the developments in digital photography have given me a similar level of freedom to be creative.
I started photographing weddings in the 1970's using medium format film cameras and spent half my life in my dark room developing prints. Today its all digital and now find myself spending the other half of my life in front of a computer screen post processing digital images...little change on that front then!.
