My Story

Life is what happens while you’re busy making other plans...
— John Lennon

Perhaps my all time favourite quotation was immortalised in the John Lennon song 'Beautiful Boy'. 

My life journey has taken me in many unforeseen directions and I guess that's why the quotation above means so much, it rings so true to life, and I think everyone can relate to it.

I used to be a professional pilot, mainly involved in teaching flying skills to the fine young men and women of the Royal Air Force.  However, much of my spare time was taken up with my photography.  I am, as I discovered to my surprise a long time ago, a particularly creative soul.

Life is about making the time to do something you love, and after a career in aviation I have decided to do photography the way I want to do it; no pressure, no expectations, just for the love of it, to enrich my life with something I find can be incredibly rewarding.

I am delighted that I have finally taken the decision to follow my heart and take up photography full time.  John Lennon's wonderful music rings true once more....
