As a photographer I’m mostly self-taught, focusing on documentary and portrait with an element of street photography. From a working class background, I studied graphic design at college, worked in London as an art editor / magazine designer for 20 years, and am now a freelance graphic designer / art editor / photographer.
I’m interested in photography as ‘social documentary’ - observing and discovering everyday places, and the interaction between people and the environment. My community is also important to me, so local issues have formed the focus of several personal projects I’ve worked on or are currently in progress.
I live in Southend in Essex with my wife and two daughters.
