Put simply I’m a computer geek, hardcore database programmer and part time photographer who loves dogs.


When I left school (over 25 years ago now) I could write computer software and take photographs. Now, having enjoyed a good career as a freelance programmer I’m gradually turning my attention more towards photography. I tend to specialise in architectural photography and try to capture some essence of the buildings within the context of their environment and the people who use them, but also do a lot of product shoots for web sites and promotional work.

I now spend my time providing IT support to architectural practices and solicitors, carrying out computer programming in the transport industry (most major UK freight operators use my software), and doing architectural / urban photography.

Oh and dogs, I like photographing dogs too.

I have a website featuring my commercial photography work  which you might like.

wanted to do with their lives, some of the most interesting 40 year

    Hi there,

    I’ve just stumbled over you photos of Scunthorpe and find them very interesting.I’m just beginning to take an interest in photography and really liked some of your views of the local area.
    Imagine how surprised i was to read the you too are involved in IT as well, looks like you been in the game longer and much more successfully than me though.
    I’ll definitely be looking out for your future uploads, and pointing friends in the direction of your photos.

    keep up the good work:-)

      Cheers, thanks for your kind comments.

      I’ve found a few commonalities between techs, photographers and musicians.

      If you are good at one of them, statistically there is a high probability you are good at another.

      Give me a shout if I can help in any way.
