I'm now semi-retired based in the resort town of Prestatyn, North Wales. I now only take on work for three long-standing clients which keeps me as busy as I want to be. I'm not looking for new clients and no longer carry out passport/ID photos, weddings or family portraits.

My passion for photography began watching my grandfather working in his darkroom. I later got a great buzz developing black and white film and then printing in a make-shift darkroom - seeing an image appear on a blank sheet of paper in the developing tank. I shoot digital now currently using a 36MP DSLR.

When I'm not working, you'll find me with my fellow Prestatyn Rotarians or stood in the River Elwy at night fishing for sea trout!
