Photo Essays

I have been taking photographs since my teens. Although I used to do my own monochrome processing and printing, this was through poverty rather than a desire to manipulate my images; I never really felt the urge to get involved with the technical side of photography.

Now I have embraced the digital revolution with all the supposed advances that that entails. Near instant access to the results of my labours. A good thing? Only if I can resist the temptation to tinker with the image for hours on end in Photoshop - the worm has turned!.

Many of my photographs reflect my professional interest in the use of light and a selection of images where the illumination of the subject is paramount are shown on the pages below;
