London, England

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.
