Being a full-time commercial photographer based in Paris France and London, England for some 30 years, refining my craft, making mistakes, but learning every day, and As I draw closer and closer towards retirement from business life, I’ve joined education initially part-time as an adult learner, to see if my personality could respect the classroom.
As this journey moved forward in an academic environment, venturing into a 2-year full-time Foundation Degree in Media Production, which added both video, and audio practical and academic skill sets to my portfolio.
Now, some three years later, I’m in the last year of a BA in Photography at university, with the intentions, after a year’s break to enroll onto a PGCE and then MA and then you never know maybe a PhD in Photography.
So what’s here and what am I’m all about? Photography has changed over recent years with the advent of digital, “Everyone is a photographer… until Manual”, and feeling that the appreciation of the “Art of the Image”, and recognition of photography as a whole has diminished, you could argue this also included the job title of a visual practitioner, I’ve decided to return to analog photography.
Nowadays, I am fortunate to have several thousands of subscribers on social media engaging in my journey, the sharing of knowledge and experience of images I have taken, processed in the darkroom or on a computer, then displayed on the wall.
Shooting still images on film, 35mm, medium and large format are my priority, I still embrace digital photography, where the device is a tool, like a spanner (wrench) is to a car mechanic, a tool to fulfill the job. I’m taking steps every day to increase the quality of my video content, and also to improve my storytelling skills.
