I studied Fine Art as part of a teaching degree at Oxford university. My medium of choice was photography. I taught for a few years, but after travelling extensively in India, I lost touch with the mainstream and became a self-employed carpenter and raised a family. I then became a graphic designer, designing editorial content for county magazines in England's West Country. Throughout I have been an active semi-professional photographer. I have a collection of editorial-only images held by the Alamy Stock Agency. I currently live in Southern Spain and co-founded Al-Andaluz, a local photography group that holds regular exhibitions.
