My background in Graphic Design provided an incentive for producing a
professional image. Since I retired from graphics I am content to
concentrate on my photographic interests. The freedom to find my own
subjects provides me with a platform to produce images in my own time
and without commercial restraints and demands. I combine the cameras
image with the editing tools of Photoshop, this provides a more
controlled product than the old darkrooms ever could. I specialise in Photoshop editing as much as I do in the actual photographic process. My services on commission work are reliable, I am a conscientious and articulate image maker and photographer and can work at industrial pace. The samples in these Galleries demonstrate a style I try to maintain, the hidden information in digital photographs can be exposed and add character and detail. This is an art form as much as a technical achievement.
My design experiences gave me success but not fame, I produced the artwork for the first Nurofen packaging and wall dispensers. Re branded Bingham's Meat Products into one cohesive brand for their packaging which elevated their brand and products to a new level and over night profits. I won an advertising award for a campaign whilst working for a Marketing Agency and coined the name Red R for a charity working in disaster relief and rescue who now have offices in London and world wide.
The proof is in the detail and I endeavour to capture and tease out the nuances that digital photography records but lays hidden in the depths of the shadows. My work has been published and exhibited and I hope to continue finding interesting situations and opportunities in the future.
Many people are now using my work on their own websites and social media platforms, these include The Circus of Horrors, Twycross Zoo, State of Undress (Folk Group), several historical re-enactment societies, Tewksbury Medieval Fair Organisers, Cafe Florian in Venice, among smaller groups and individuals.
