I’ve been a photographer since the age of 8, with family photographic links going back two more generations. Since retiring in 2000 I’ve been able to spend more time on photography, and the history of photography too – I edit “Photographica World” and carry out research on photographers and historic cameras. Because I worked in technological industries, I’ve also grown up with computers; so I do, and teach, digital photography as well. My interests are mostly to stretch photography a little in new directions; the circular pictures are made without computer help, using a home-built camera with a fisheye lens. I’m also interested in abstract and architectural photography, and am presently doing a lot of panoramas.
