I have been hooked on photography ever since I got my first camera for my fifth or sixth birthday. I learnt from my parents about black and white photography from composition all the way through to developing and printing my own pictures.

In recent years I felt that I wanted to push myself and my photography further, to improve my photographic knowledge and artistic composition, having successfully worked for many years in scientific research, I wanted a new direction.

In 2012 I had the opportunity to study photography at Bournemouth University. Following the deferral of my final year,I was awarded a DipHE Photography with Merit in 2016 and in 2017 I gained a Royal Photographic Society Licentiate.

Working towards a photography degree has given me greater confidence in my ability as an artist and a photographer. I feel my work shows the process of developing and expressing ideas which moves it beyond intuitively capturing an image. The development of ideas and the establishment of my primary objectives is a crucial process in producing images that are a combination of clearly defined intentions and open spontaneity.
