Artist's Statement

I love photography. Like most people, I have owned some sort of camera for most of my (considerable) life but it was only when ill health forced me into early retirement that I turned to photography as a therapy to aid my recovery.

When you study photography, most experts encourage you to 'find your niche' and 'develop your style', neither of which I have managed to do so far. My problem is that I find so many different genres of photography enjoyable and I get as much pleasure from the editing process as from capturing an image with so many digital tools now available. Of course, I can produce what could be referred to as standard shots but my greatest satisfaction comes from creating something the camera didn’t see.

My website was set up a number of years ago and my 'photographic style' has changed considerably. Perhaps exposure on the West Norfolk Artists website is the incentive I need to do what I have been saying for ages and update my website but, until I do, please feel free to check it out. I’m happy to discuss selling prints of my images or working on commissions if you have something specific in mind.

As a result of my involvement in the local photographic scene, I have recently been appointed secretary of the King’s Lynn & District Camera Club and I would encourage anyone wishing to develop their photography skills to come along and join us.
