I have been photographing professionally since 1983

The first 18 years, in film-only times, I owned a multi-task studio which had an even spread of wedding, industrial, advertising and people photography, using film cameras from 35mm to 5 x 4 inch.

My concentration on the panoramic landscape had begun years earlier with the purchase a a 6 x 17 [cm] film camera specially designed to produce 1 to 3 ratio images, 4 frames per 120 sized film.

 

After 12 years I added the shooting of multiple digital images from DSLRs which are computer-merged into one panoramic image of differing sizes and proportion including the connection of vertical panoramics to create large almost square images.

 

For the next 16 years, wall-art, posters, postcards, greeting cards, calendars, book publishing and distribution took my time but I am now free to concentrate just on creating images and art-work with photographic origins, for sale over many specialist niche websites. [see Links page] I have shot in 26 countries, published 6 books, contribute to the Getty Images stock library and have taught various photographic courses. My two favourite landscape countries, Australia and New Zealand dominate my art work.

It was a hectic, challenging and dynamic couple of decades; there were few kinds of image-subjects I was not asked to create.

 

When the wedding count topped 600 and I was in need of a healthy change, I sold up and Givenworks was born in 2000.

 

I became a landscape-only photographic artist and eventually author and publisher also, learning and embracing the digital age with computers, CMYK pre-press publishing and most of what Photoshop and InDesign offered.
