My interest in photography stems from an early age when I worked entirely in monochrome images. At Cambridge University I joined 'Varsity' - a monthly newspaper designed by students for students. As photographic editor I took the opportunity to allocate to myself some of the more interesting assignments, such as when Alfred Hitchcock and Germaine Greer were invited to talk, and when leading Tory P.M. hopeful, R.A.Butler, was admitted as Master of Trinity College in 1966. A full time career teaching Politics and Economics followed, largely at Merchant Taylors' School, Northwood. This still gave me the opportunity to continue my passion with photography, either photographing school dramatic productions, or taking portraits of colleagues. The invitation to photograph the esteemed sculptor Lynn Chadwick, old boy of the school, in his home and studio was one of my last and most memorable projects there. Early on I was influenced by the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson in photographing people living their lives rather than portraiture, and my photographs taken when travelling through Europe reflect this. As such I have titled my exhibition 'Des Moments Justes'/ 'Some Just-Right Moments'.
