Bio: Based in Guernsey, Channel Islands. My style of photography has allowed me to travel widely giving illustrated presentations of my work. My interest in photography became a passion by exploring the immense possibilities that digital technology offered the creative photographic artist I was enrolled as a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Sodety in 2006 and currently serve on their Distinctions Panel assessing Assodateship and Fellowship Panels of work for the Visual Art Category. Some of my work is included in the Stephen H Tyng Foundation as part of the Royal Photographic Societies Permanent Collection for the Nation.
In 2011 an invitation to become a member of the London Salon of Photography was greatly accepted. My aim when creating new work is to challenge the fundamentals and boundaries of known photography, to strive to be unique in my preferred style of photographic art
