About me:

I trained as a photographer on The Kent and Sussex Courier, a local newspaper in Kent, England. From there I worked for several regional newspapers before moving to London's Fleet Street in 1969.

I covered everything from wars, riots, disaster and mayhem through to Paris fashions and studio photography before going freelance and specializing in the music and showbusiness areas.

Some of my most enjoyable work was for Paul and Linda McCartney but I had a generally great time, often wondering why I got paid to do what I did.

I retired from photography in 1996 and worked as an internet consultant for a London IT company for a year before digital cameras relit my enthusiasm for my profession.

When Micro Four Thirds cameras came along, i embraced the technology and ethos behind them and started my Youtube channel covering all aspects of photography and the wonders of the Micro Four Thirds system.
