I’ve had a camera since my early teens but never took it seriously until I bought an SLR for a hitchhiking trip round USA, Canada and Mexico in 1978.
After that photography became very much a passion. I taught myself how to do darkroom work and learnt more as I went along.
As time went by, I became more competent and took on odd commissions including the occasional wedding.
It wasn’t until I moved to Wales in 2001 that I bought my first digital camera which I felt to be a revolution. Everything was directly under my control.
These days, I enjoy portraiture and street photography. My hobby can be exciting and takes me to places I wouldn’t ordinarily go. And I meet all sorts of interesting people and love to capture their image.
I like to see my photographs used, so I do quite a lot of promotional community stuff. I take on projects - social documentary photography is an important part of recording history and life around us.
I would hope this side of my photography will eventually be lodged in the Archives at Caernarfon.
