My fascination with film began as a child one Christmas when my father bought me an Admira 8mm Cine Camera. I was out the door and making my first film even before the first signs of heavily snow-laden light were penetrating the morning horizon, and I was smitten.
I have had a fascinating career in Film & TV, and working as a Cinematographer, I have had the pleasure of working with many gifted Directors including Nic Roeg, Gillies Mackinnon, Ken Loach, Tim Burton, James Ivory, Jane Campion, Antonia Bird, Toa Fraser and Woody Harrelson to name but a few. Working with these luminaries was an incredible experience, from which many insights, perceptions and pathways into the visual world of cinema have been absorbed.
But for me, it was the camera that caught my eye. Lensing has always been my passion, and I carry a camera wherever I go. For me, photography is a visual gateway, a way of understanding and documenting what I see and how I interpret life.
Now, I am concentrating my view on the world of stills and wrapping my eyes around the digital mind space one frame at a time.
