I've loved taking pictures since I was eight years old! My first films and printing black & white pictures was when I was 12. At school I was always in the darkroom, so naturally this was my best subject and I achieved high grades in my exams. I left school at 16, and started working for a commercial photographer straight away, doing studio and development of colour films & printing.
After a few years, I wanted to travel so took on seasonal work selling cameras and equipment to the genral public, which allowed me to save my money to go travelling in the winter. After 5 years I managed to secure a job with our local newspaper. So began my photo journalist career! In my time I have covered so many different events, literally capturing the heart of Island life here in Jersey, Channel Islands.
More than anything, photographs are THE record for remembering important events in your life, and giving so much enjoyment too! A well taken photograph will be with you and your family forever. Light ,composition and attention to background are all essential to make that perfect image that is special to you.
