Born in Santiago, Chile of English parents I was blessed with dual citizenship (British and Chilean) and two languages (English and Spanish). School in England was followed by a career split equally between the USA and the UK with numerous international assignments. I first became involved in photography at age 11 in a B & W darkroom, working for the school paper. I have been freelancing as a writer and photographer since 1985, first in stock photography, then assignments, then writing and photography combined, mostly for the editorial market. From there I branched out into corporate work, marketing and PR, and then authored several books, including a novel written under contract. More recently I have expanded into design work, video and audio. If it has to do with communication, then I consider it my field. I am self-taught except for the NYI Photography Course. I now live in Seattle, Washington, with my wife (and partner), a talented and experienced graphic designer, photographer a
