Photo by Darren Harbar.

My interest in photography began at an early age when I studied the subject at school, I further developed my interest when I later worked with a specialist photographic company as a photographer’s assistant where I was also employed as a black and white printing technician. I cut my teeth on a 35mm film SLR, working with those wonderful smelling chemicals in the darkroom, but now I work mostly in digital format.

My current work encompasses a range of photographic interests, including wildlife, macro, animal portraiture, landscapes and architectural studies. However, my main focus and passion lies in aviation photography, mostly of vintage aircraft types.

My work has been published in the magazines ‘Britain at War’, ‘Which Digital Camera?’ and ‘Flypast’ and has also featured in The Spitfire Society’s annual calendar for several years. More recently my work has been published in IWM Duxford airshow programmes and also in their social media marketing campaigns. My work also features in the galleries of the Flying Legends website and their social media presences.
