My Bio A photographer for 35 years, working may way up from Canon cameras to Mamiya 645 and ultimately Pentax 6x7 medium format I have now gone full circle and I am back to using Canon again.
I currently utilise Canon digital SLR's with L series lenses.

Until recently the secretary of the Phoenix Railway Photographic Circle which I have been a proud member of for over 20 years now, attempting to push the envelope of progressive railway photography.

Now living in Colchester, Essex after 26 years in Northampton I have swapped the gentle rolling hills of Northamptonshire for Constable country.

Travelling the world and my own country extensively, I love the dramatic scenery of the American West, the Swiss Alps, the Tuscan hills, the Scottish Highands and the west coast of Ireland. Springtime in the Tehachapi Mountains of California and winter in the Mojave desert are my nirvana though.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
The review of East Anglia's railways in action during 2010 will be available on January 1st 2011. Entitled naturally enough 'Anglia Reflections 2010', it will be a 120 page softback with news and views right up to the last day of the year.
Featuring the GEML as well as Essex, Suffolk and Norfolk branchlines, the 300 odd photographs with extended captions will provide a comprehensive record of the years main events.
