I have always had an interest in photography but, in 2009, after taking early retirement, I decided to take my hobby more seriously. By reading a lot, taking thousands of photographs and going on courses, I was able to improve rapidly.
In 2012 I was awarded an ARPS and CPAGB and further awards followed. In 2015 one of my images was chosen, by the PAGB Great Britain team, to be used as part of a panel of ten prints to compete in the FIAP 26th International Colour Print Biennial against twenty-five other nations. Great Britain eventually came second to Argentina - by only one point. To date I have now had over 500 images accepted into international salons.
