Everything Is a subject, every subject has a rhythm. To feel it is the Raison d’être. The photograph is a fixed moment of such a raison d’être which lives on in itself.
Quote; Andre Kertesz

Welcome to my Website
For 18 years I have been photographing many places on my travels especially my home city Liverpool and Merseyside, taking great pride in showing off my home city in a different light.
My approach is simple: to Wait, Watch and Capture scenes as they unfold. This technique takes patience, but for me always pays off. Like the act of taking a photograph itself, I have waited for the right time to push my work forward into a commercial realm now that Liverpool is becoming the perfect showcase for art and culture once again
I enjoy using my photography to dispel the negative myths that have been associated with Liverpool in the past.
I take pleasure from photographing the great parts of the city and helping us to put false stereotypes to bed, letting the images tell the true story. Over the time I have been taking pictures in Liverpool I have seen the city’s pride restored, leading to a more confident and artistically vibrant environment to work in.
I have taken thousands of photographs down the years now is the right time to put them into the market for all to enjoy. There is a niche for original and honest Liverpool photography that my work fits neatly into; I intend to sell my work to both corporate clients and individual art-loving private customers. I will sell my work either as specially commissioned tailored packages or selling sole images from my extensive library of work.
My photographs will be available to view through my website
My first exhibition was with John Lewis 2003 in Liverpool this was titled “Behind the Liver Birds”
And was a very big success as I made a lot of sales publicly and to the commercial market along with people asking to see more but more recently I am on my 18th exhibition of Auschwitz-Echo’s of Sorrow.
Although at the beginning of visiting Auschwitz for the first time I really had no intentions of doing anything with the photographs except keep them for record and personal reasons as my grandmother I believe was German and Jewish, she had a very deep hatred of the Nazi’s. When I arrived home from my first visit in 2006 I was approached by Lucy Byrne of Dot-Art and she asked me to do an exhibition of my photography of not just Auschwitz as during my visit I was lucky to have photographed Oskar Schindlers office and factory before it refurbishment in 2007 and have now photographed it as well on all three visits to Poland.
Also I am returning to Europe to do more additional work to get a book published with interest from a company in Berlin so please if you are interested please call me or email and we can discuss it further.
