My Occupation Photographer &
My Bio I was born in London in 1948. Having originally studied theoretical chemistry I won a scholarship from the Royal College of Art to do an MA in photography. This opportunity saw the start of my career, which began in 1976 when I won the Vogue Award and worked as a staff photographer for the magazine. I have produced several books, founded the Network photographers agency and photographed for magazines throughout the world including Life & National Geographic and received the Oscar Barnac award in 1991

In recent years, my work has become more diverse: I have been working on short films, explored different styles of portraiture and have worked extensively for corporate and advertising clients.

I am currently working on 3 major projects, a film entitled Flow, Visual Noise (an exploration of image & messaging in the visual landscape) and “The White Tent”, a portrait project using a mobile white tent across the UK from Glastonbury to a festival of erotica.

Things I Don't Mind The World Knowing

Spoiler alert: I'm thinking my next book will be about...
There are a series of "White Tent Visits" coming in the near future, Glastonbury Festival, "Take Ten" from a Guardian Magazine series and a books on my work in the 1980's; I revisiting Miami Beach and Albania .
Everyone needs to know about these authors and artists...

This book is addictive. Read it. (At your own risk.)
