Portraits

When I was a student at the London College of Printing, Environmental Portraiture was a type of photography often discussed. I thought it was about plants and sunshine – but it means taking photographs of people in their surroundings rather than in a studio.  I do both – and often travel to an office, home or work place to take somebody’s photograph. My aim is to capture people in context – a family portrait on a beach often says more about them than one taken under studio conditions, in the same way as a managing director might be better reflected by his board room.

I started with authors for their book jackets but I have added actors, business men, families, musicians,  entertainers – both the well known and the soon to be discovered.
