About

I've had an interest in photography since i was young using a kodak instamatic camera which i still have and then a disc camera, in 1990 i had a nasty motorbike accident and ended up in hospital next to a professional photographer, he got me even more interested and i started practicing with a Zenit slr my mum had bought out of the catalogue but did not use any more, i practiced for years reading more and more books and all the magazines that were available.
In 2000 while working as a doorman i got injured and ended up in hospital for 18 months at the end of which i lost a lower limb and could no longer carry on working, i had to make a career change so decided to fall back onto photographer, i gained employment with a local event photographer and polished my self taught techniques and continued to learn, from here i started wedding photography and portraits at the home, specialising in photos for people on low incomes and/or benefits, however deteriorating health struck again and further surgery, i was told i would never walk again, from this point my photographic career returned to advanced amateur and i fell into a rut, lack of interest and lots of self pity, at this point i joined the Disabled Photographers Society and after a short time i took over the running of their quarterly photographic competition, i also entered a panel of images for my Ldps distinction which is judged by the Royal Photographers Society, and i am pleased to say i passed which at the time helped lift my spirits.
Where am i now? well i'm glad to say i can walk again although somedays it is very little, i still take pictures which i upload into a stock library, i am due for more surgery soon which hopefully will have a more positive change to my life and my photographic career.

All the best
