Bassist, Guitarist, Recording Production

Have played in many bands since the early 1960s.

Styles are many and varied including: Blues, R&B, Folk, Jazz, Pop, Rock.

Favourite period is 1966 - 1975 so most styles reflect the influences of bands at that time. Main influences are Muddy Waters, Chuck Berry, John Lee Hooker, The Beatles, Rolling Stones, John Mayall, Cream, Frank Zapper, All the artists on Stax. Too many to list, but you get the general idea.

I have been taking pictures since the late 1950's

Interests include Landscape, Macro, Events. I particularly like to capture unusual shapes and unexpected or found objects and viewpoints.

I started processing black and white in the early 1970's and spent many hours locked in my darkroom. Once my main full time IT career kicked in I had to abandon the darkroom and concentrate my efforts elsewhere. Still taking photos but without any post camera work. I have been taking digital photographs since 1999.

Check my Flickr Gallery for a preview of some recent work.
