Twenty years on, although my interest in photography is wide ranging my real passion is for the real and surreal stories and theatre of the street. I have a website called http://www.street-fotografie.co.uk/ which is solely for my street photography, there you will find galleries of street photography and information and date of upcoming talks and lectures that I am giving.
So what’s this website all about? Well over the last few years I have found myself becoming more interested in contemporary photography and moving away from so called 'club photography' to explore my own ideas and vision of creating interesting pictures that tell a story or have some sort of feeling about them rather than just of something. Also I would like to see where my photography talent and vision leads me in the future. What new projects and opportunities will come along if I put myself out there? Who knows this may be where you come in?
I began photography as a 10 year old, with my first camera that came with what was called an adventure kit, probably children of the 1970s would know what these are! Then because of showing an interest my father bought me an Omo Cosmic symbol camera for Christmas. During the early 1950s my father was a photographer/ Radiographer in the RAF at Headley Court, which I believe was a rehabilitation centre for pilots and air crew from the Second World War. He continued his interest in photography when he came out of the RAF and had his own darkroom at home. As a boy I would watch him develop his own photographs and this is where my interest began.
