My photographic work includes studies in decay, up-close and personal floral photographs, and taking 'another look' at the everyday and mundane. I am drawn to the details and am fascinated by the many ways in which it is possible to view and present that which we may take for granted.

I aim to capture the atmosphere of any event and pay particular attention to the details too. Read Less

I am currently researching the life and works of master stained glass artist Lawrence Stanley Lee (1909 - 2011) and am making a photographic record of his windows and other works.

I am also a keen genealogist and undertake historical research into areas such as a particular street or even small villages. My latest projects investigate the histories of people to whom old postcards were sent (pre 1910), and sitters and photographers from 19th century cartes de visite. As part of this research I restore old damaged and faded photographs. Read Less
