About me

I'm a 360-photographer, retoucher and digital artist with a long photographic background and an enthusiastic, inquisitive spirit. I make photographs, 360-panoramas, composites and collages.

I want my work to encourage imagination, and to show people places and things they have never seen, or which may not even exist.

I love journeys, technology and science, exotica and the unknown, and sculpting with water.

Living in Tokyo since 2004 to discover more about Japanese design and culture, while travelling to India for regular inspiration and reality checks.

Life is short. So many amazing possibilities!

    As I reflected various photographs in Photoshop... continue reading (1, 1 image)

  4. Living in Japan and learning of the “Yaoyorozu no Kami”, I began what has since become an evolving, long-term project.

    The first series of the project used photographs taken in Enoshima
    With this image, Water Sprites, I wanted to create an ornate, fractal other-worldliness, pulsing with life. Two large entities,... continue reading (0, 1 image)

  5. After a trip to the Himalayan foothills in 2019, I realized I had hardly worked on any of my photographs from multiple visits over the years. India for me has always been a place for conceiving new ideas, meeting people, and going on peaceful walks in spectacular parts of nature... continue reading (0, 1 image)

  6. Flight rule #1: always get a window seat!

    I have been photographing clouds from planes since 1993 and built up a huge archive of photographs. In fact an early series of cloud photographs taken in 1995 formed the main body of my portfolio for many years.

    As part of a... continue reading (0, 1 image)

  7. The Subterranean Pool (from the series “Myths”)

    I wanted to create a more narrative series of work than my usual photographic collages. The images were made intentionally “noisy”, warped and distorted to blur detail...
