I’ve always had a passion for photography since being a young lad when my sister bought me my first camera. It was a Kodak Instamatic camera with a set of flashcubes that you fitted to the top and rotated once fired. That was around 50 years ago and how times have changed since then! The next landmark I remember was the birth of the digital camera and getting a free, yes free!, Hewlett Packard digital camera with a printer I bought back in 2002. A very basic camera sized at 1.3MB and a 35mm LCD screen on the back! Even though it was very basic, I got an immense amount of enjoyment using it. I found it amazing to be able to see my images as soon as they had been taken especially when I got them home and viewed them on a computer screen.
Since then, I have bought several cameras  over the years but it wasn’t until 2013 that I wanted to take a more serious approach to my photography I purchased my first DSLR and sought professional tuition. It was only after receiving this tuition that I started to appreciate the power of photography and the pleasure a camera can bring you. My advice for any aspiring photographer is to get proper tuition, I wish I had done it years earlier!
Along with my passion for photography, my other passion in life is live music, attending concerts and seeing artistes / bands perform, especially seeing talented guitarists play as seen in my portfolio.
Along with attending live concerts, I’ve always enjoyed viewing photos of artistes and admired the work of music photographers who create fantastic images for viewers to enjoy.
In my teenage years, I remember going into newsagents and buying popular music papers available at the time, eg, Sounds, New Musical Express and Melody Maker to read concert reviews and to view photos of artistes.
Those days were long before the Internet and Social Media and the power of the press and photography was the only way fans could keep up to date with performers and bands they followed.
I still think to this day seeing a good photo of a performer or band in concert portrays a lot more passion and emotion than anything captured in video/movie format.
In 2015 I took early retirement, this newly found welcome freedom allowed me more time to travel to many places and venues around Europe, Russia and the US to see fantastic concerts and do something I’ve always wanted to do. 
Pursue my two passions of photography and live music and  bring them together in the art of music photography.
Thank you for visiting my website, I hope you enjoy viewing the photos as much as I have enjoyed taking them.
