My passion for photography began at school, and continued as I went on to study it at Ealing School of Art, followed by a spell working in an advertising studio in London. It remained a hobby, and when I discovered the street work of Robert Doisneau, Richard Kalvar, Elliot Erwitt, et al, as well as the modern masters of the genre, the passion was reignited, fanned by the many brilliant photographers I've met and been inspired by on Flickr. Living by the sea in Dorset now, I try to find time to shoot every day, with varying degrees of success,compelled to seek out the ironic, amusing and unusual moments that can produce beauty from the absurd and quirky side of life, which is all around, if you look hard enough.........
