AboutWelcome to eclectic photoland, a place that maps out my photographic journey since November 2006. You are invited to explore my work at your leisure.
Please check out my favourite EPZ Photographers. They have produced, and are creating, a fascinating range of well seen and inspiring images.
Until recently I happily lived alone in Brighton on the south coast of England. Now I'm newly married to Caroline and living in Kingston upon Thames.
Like many people, I have been fascinated with photography for as long as I can remember.

Thanks, Respect and Regards
p.s. I often read that criticism is welcome. How often do we realise, as said by Emmet Fox, "Criticism is an indirect form of self-boasting"?
