I was born in England during the “swinging sixties” to a war hero father and creative mother.
One of my earliest memories is of my father instructing me on how to hold a camera to take a photo of him and my mother at the seashore on vacation. My father encouraged my ongoing interest in his hobby and that started a lifelong journey in photography
After college (1990) I started my career as a newspaper photographer using 35mm, moving to Nikon digital in 2004. With digital photography my interest in Photoshop commenced and I have continued to update my post production skill set with Photoshop, Lightroom, Muse (website design) and Premiere Pro (video editing)
My involvement in stock imagery started in 1993 and over the following 25+ years I have amassed a library of more than 50,000 high quality images serving several photo agencies in the USA, UK and Spain, travel/tourism magazines and guidebooks and a variety of lifestyle and businesses magazines throughout the worldwide.
I am grateful for the many opportunities I receive as a photographer in the advertising and commercial industry, travel & tourism, editorial, local/national news, websites, the jewelry industry, commercial aviation and wall decor sales.
In 2012 my wife and I moved to Sarasota to be closer to family and in 2016 I earned my FAA Commercial UAV drone Pilot’s license operating a DJI Inspire 1 which is perfect for all professional applications.
