Photography and music are my two passions. I edited photography magazines for around 20 years and launched the UK's first digital imaging magazine. I founded ePHOTOzine and was owner / publisher until 2013. The photos in my portfolio are ones I like from shoots I do in any spare time I have.

  • Photo365 - 263 - Stirred paint

    Finally got around to adding the colour to the kitchen cupboards I started work on a few weeks ago. As I was stirring the paint this evening I noticed the interesting patterns and photographed them. Taken with the Pentax K20D and 100mm macro.

  • Photo365 - 260 - conkers

    When I say the word Conkers all I can think now is Dizzee Rascal's song "Bonkers" That thought aside, this is a bunch of conkers just about ready to pop. Taken using the Pentax K20D and 16-45mm lens, fitted with a polarising filter.
