I taught Physics for many years in Grammar and Independent schools, ending as head of Science at RMS Rickmansworth where I was also able to teach some photography. During that time I also did some work for the Open University, mainly teaching History of Science.
While at Rickmansworth I became acquainted with Missenden Abbey and the courses presented by Brian Nevitt. From there the photgraphy really took off.
