Biog & Exhibitions

My first photograph was taken when, as a pupil at an infant school, we were taken on a day-trip to London. On top of the Great London Fire Monument I was able to shoot areas such as Tower Bridge, Tower of London and other well known places. It was enjoyable pressing the shutter button and, at a later stage due to it being on film, wonderful to see the photographs. To coincide with my 21st birthday, in 1984 I bought myself a Ricoh XR7 camera together not only the 50mm lens, but so too a 35mm and 70-200mm lenses. My style of photography has varied, therefore to improve my artistic interests in 2010 I started a Bachelor of Arts in Photography course at the University Campus Suffolk (now the University of Suffolk (UoS)).

This biog shows my progress and will be updated, especially up and coming exhibitions together with achievements.
