Enjoy my portfolio - I enjoy travel, landscape, concerts, portraiture, monochrome, architecture and the occasional experiment.

I would like to be good at nature but I don't really have the patience. Some of my nature shots I have been quite pleased with but it is the weakest area I have attempted.

I have always wanted to create some totally unique images, heavily manipulated, using lots of layers but somehow I never seem to get round to it, despite having a few ideas I would like to play around with.

About

Based in Wallasey and a member of Wallasey Amateur Photographic Society since about 1994, I took up photography on New Year's Day 1990 when I went on a skiing holiday in Andorra. I didn't own a camera so I bought one there - a colour 2000 for about 16! I now own 2 Nikon film SLRS (although the F50 has recently passed away and the D65 is held together with sellotape!) On 19 February 2007 I bought a Nikon D80. I also own a Bronica which I rarely use.

My favourite type of photography is pop stars. Yes I've shot Elton John (who wouldn't if given the opportunity!!!), REM, Status Quo, Genesis, Lisa Stansfield, The Human League, Midge Ure, Go West, Blondie, Boy George, ABC, Errol Brown, Sam Brown, Lightning Seeds, Erasure, Black, and erm Atomic Kitten! (Well they there performing in our local park and I was the official photographer, so I had no choice!).

My ambition is photograph Madonna and U2 - See I do have good taste in music after all! I finally met Andy Earle at Focus on Imaging in 2007 - One of the best album cover photographers in the world and a real inspiration (Pink Floyd, Madonna, Rolling Stones, Eurythmics, Bow Wow Wow...)

I also enjoy travel photography, landscapes, seascapes, portraits, night scenes and would like to become a lot more creative with my photography. I would love to shoot an Album cover for a big British band - (Coldplay, Keane..) although an album cover for any band would be great.
