About

I was born and brought up in New Zealand. After leaving school at 18 I gained an arts council bursary and studied Costume design at what was then NZís only professional theatre. I left NZ when I was 21 like a lot of other young NZers who wanted to further their careers in distant lands. Having backpacked my way across the world I eventually arrived in England and have remained here ever since.

My working life began in London as a Costume designer for what was then ATV at Elstree studios doing mainly American shows. I also freelanced at the BBC. During this period I also studied Silversmithing at the Sir John Cass School of art and later at the Norwich art school.

I took up photography quite by accident 6 odd years ago. At work a catalogue was needed to show clothing. I volunteered to have a stab at the photography, thinking it could not be that difficult. I did not realise that it was indeed very easy to point and shoot, but very difficult to get any worthwhile results. However I perservered and produced a fine catalogue, in the process becoming hooked on photography. I also realised how much I had to learn, in order to do this I ransacked the local library, spent a fortune on photography magazines, Joined EPZ and started shooting.
