"Over thirty years experience in professional
photography has given me the opportunity to work in many countries
and many situations. I have always loved the challenge of
interpreting the colours, light and ambience of a location, and my
aim is always to bring back photographs that are not only 'on budget
and on time' but most importantly are images that surprise, delight
and exceed the client's expectations. I have always been
passionate about colour and composition, and the way that details
can often tell us more about a subject, situation or place than a
general view. Whether these are details of light, colour or form is
immaterial as long as they become graphic and compelling
compositions. I am not a photojournalist in the traditional
mould; my influences have been photographers like Pete Turner and
Ernst Haas rather than Cartier-Bresson or Don McCullin."
