About me

I am a retired photography lecturer with a background in fine art practice and pedagogy. I am currently working on a number of photographic topographic projects but have very little experience of web design. My original training was in Fine Art painting, at Walthamstow and Newport colleges of art, but I have generally and increasingly gravitated towards the medium of photography. I have a keen interest in the History of Photography (and history in general) with my photographic heroes being Eugene Atget and Walker Evans. Since retiring I have also tried to find time to resurrect my painting skills.

For my intervening teaching career I trained in Brighton (PGCE), and subsequently did a Master’s Degree in Education with the Open University. I worked at three different secondary schools (two as Department Head) and a local Further Education college, all in Hampshire, in a career lasting 40 years, since when I have returned to concentrating more on my own work. I also taught art, pottery and photography in various adult education settings alongside the day job, earlier in my career, to help make ends meet. Through much of my career I also worked as an examiner/moderator at GCSE and ‘A’ Level.
