My current work is the distillation of over forty years of professional experience in the creative arts. As a designer, photographer, art director and illustrator I have worked alongside many talented people and have been exposed to a myriad of visual influences. Much of my work as an art director on commercial shoots has been with models and I have used this experience to build up a portfolio of mostly nude work although I still have a strong connection with fashion imagery. Years of shooting for model agencies has given me the ability to work with models from all walks of life and varying experiences which I have found essential, especially on stressful shoots.
I work almost exclusively with a Nikon digital SLR and process through Capture NX and Photoshop. Being old school I prefer to get the image right in the camera but am increasingly interested in sympathetic editing and continue to develop my skills in this area.
Working with great models is addictive and many have become friends. I find that working in a team, even if it's just the two of you is so much more rewarding than making solo creations. I'm never 100% satisfied with whatever I produce and am always striving to improve or try new things. This can be tiring and tedious but there's no compromise for me.
