About


I am a photographer based in Bedford.  I would describe my photography is observational but I also have a great love of the coast too .  So you either find me by the sea or, pre Covid, in a museum watching people walking up and down photogenic staircases.  

Being an active member within the Camera Club circuit, attending competitions and exhibitions throughout the UK, along with volunteering for the Royal Photographic Society arranging and running events in the East Anglia region, keeps me busy.

There is also judging, giving talks and demonstrations to Camera Clubs plus I also help those wishing to develop their camera craft and post processing skills, one to one or in small groups. I currently teach with Zoom to connect to people and it is going much better than I initially thought it would.

One to One & more



Want to get a little more from your photographs?   Need some help with post processing?  Need to learn more about the camera?  How to prepare for print?

Working one to one greatly improves your chance of absorbing information.  A typical request for one to one:  Help me with post processing !  Spend a half, or full, day learning Photoshop from ground up.  If you are already understand it but just need some tips and techniques to remove those halos or use luminosity masks and blending modes then it can all be accommodated.

If its camera knowledge you are looking for then come out for a walk and let us get you off AUTO and turn your camera into something creative.

GROUPS by Zoom - If you wish to learn with others then why not join a zoom group.  A five session booking will cover all the basics.  Additional sessions in blocks of five cover tips and techniques to then help you apply and deliver the knowledge into your photographs.  Groups are limited to five people and also cover one to one break out sessions.
