I've been taking photographs ever since I inherited the family hand-me-down Kodak 126 Instamatic at the age of 10. I still remember my very first film: it was used on a school trip to Chester Zoo. A few years ago I found the photographs from that first roll of film on a trip home to see my parents. It was just a bunch of vaguely giraffe and ostrich shaped fuzzy blobs, but from that very first film I was hooked! I will always be grateful to my mum (who was an enthusiastic photographer herself) for giving me that first camera.

I love all kinds of photography, from modern digital photography to Polaroid and other analogue photography. Favourite subjects include travel, urban exploration. I love black and white photography and all kinds of experimental and alternative photography. You can find my Polaroid photography and experiments with using adapted lenses elsewhere on this website.
