I was born in Wells, Somerset UK and moved to
London when I was young, so I consider myself as a Londoner really. When I left school I
worked as an apprentice mechanic for Fiat and
later for Ferrari. I then had a brief spell
as a design draughtsman - didn't like that. So I moved into
specialist vehicles... Airport fire tenders, generators, that sort of thing.
Through a roundabout route I ended
up in the film industry as an electrician, where I worked as a contractor for the BBC and many other TV/Film
companies. While there I 'discovered' good photography, and went
on to learn and hone my photography skills from excellent advice
and encouragement from award
winning Film & TV cameramen.
Right now, I'm not working
on anything specific because of health issues,
but I'm restoring a couple of my motorbikes and selling a couple
already restored... I need the money!
My hobbies currently include motorcycling and cars, Macro (close up)
Photography, music, and
computers the rest of the time.
