I am primarily a colour photographer, but sometimes an image can look better in black and white. It seems to get to the essence of what I saw and felt at the time. I often make two versions of a picture, one in colour the other black and white. Usually the decision about which one to keep is easy, but there are times when I need look at both images side by side over a period of weeks.
I was a surveyor with Melbourne Water. In 1995 I turned my almost lifelong photography hobby into a professional photography business. I am now retired and I concentrate on my personal photography.
