I have been a photojournalist and documentary photographer for more than 25 years covering social issues, the environment and news events. I undertake assignments and commissions for NGO’s, national newspapers and on occasions companies.
I define myself specifically as a documentary photographer rather than a photographer in the generic sense of the word and have a wide ranging interest in art in all sorts of forms, but find pretty photographs unimportant in comparison to factual photographs that can cause change or raise awareness of unreported issues.
I always try to tell the story, and most of my individual photographs are stories in and of themselves and on occasions I work in the sub genre of photojournalist when restrictions don’t allow for an in-depth or long term study.
