A "war baby".
My first steps in photography were a darkroom in an old wardrobe when I was 10. I left school at 15 to work as a foot messenger in the oldest press agency in Fleet Street where I entered the magical atmosphere of a darkroom at 16. I formed my own photographic company in Mayfair at 32, and stayed processing until I retired at 55 I have witnessed the progression of photography from glass plates through film to digital. I am now well hooked on digital photography and the manipulation programs, especially Photoshop. I now live in Dorset with my partner and dog, using my camera nearly every day.
