I am largely a self taught photographer from County Durham, UK, with my passion for photography being kindled a few years prior to retirement, after a career in "Corporate and Legal" in local government. My main interest is Street Photography. For me the capturing of life on the streets provides an endless tapestry of the human condition in all of its guises. It never ceases to amaze.
I also have several social projects in progress, as well as dabbling in conceptual ideas from time to time.
In recent years I have staged several successful exhibitions in the North East of England showing a variety of my work. I've also gained awards in a number of competitions as well as having work published in magazines and newspapers. One of my photographs has featured in a "British Life Photographic Awards Exhibition" at the Mall Galleries in London, receiving a "highly commended" in the "Street Life" category. The image is also in the British Life book , portfolio 2. And in 2017 I achieved runner up in the prestigious "Only in the North" exhibition, organised by The Bowes Museum and judged by Martin Parr.
