About

Being a retired commercial photographer based in the West Country, I’ve returned to academia initially part-time as an adult learner, to carry out research as a visual practitioner.

As this journey moves forward in an academic environment, which has ventured into a 2-year full-time Foundation Degree in Media Production, which had added both video, and audio, practical and academic skill sets to my portfolio.

Now, some three years later, I’m in the last year of a BA in Photography at university, with the intentions, to enrol onto a PGCE and then MA and then you never know maybe a PhD in Photography.

So what’s here and what am I’m all about? This website is for my academic visual narrative projects, visually researching conflict, families and the environmental landscape. The majority of photography or re-photography is carried out in analog, medium or large formats.

Shooting still images on film, 35mm,  medium and large format are my priority, I still embrace digital photography, where the device is a tool, like a spanner (wrench) is to a car mechanic, a tool to fulfil the job.
