I have been interested in photography since I was a teenager. Immediately after graduating I took a summer job working in a one-hour photo processing laboratory. I ended up staying with the company for eight years, moving through various positions and after leaving was taken on by the company's number one customer, where I worked for another two years.
My own photography is still largely film-based. I am a huge fan of infra-red film, though Kodak stopped making it a couple of years ago and I've not yet found a replacement that excites me in the way that this film did. I (some would say begrudgingly) embraced the world of digital photography and am finally finding ways to use it in a creative manner that interests me.
Some of my pictures are dotted around this site already and I'll put some more up in a gallery as time permits...
I have been asked about the images on the homepage. These are as follows:
