Follow Me On
I’ve been taking photos since I was teen age. I always had a passion for photography & always wanted to be a photographer.
I was asked by a friend who was a DJ n a top Leeds night club. “Do you know anyone with a camera? I need some promotional photos.” “I have one”, I said and took them. He liked them so much; he showed them to his friends. They asked me to photograph them… They in turn showed their friends, and so on… A girl friend of one of the Disco manager’ asked me to take a portfolio for her. She showed her friends… and so on. I never paid for an advert. I never paid to get in any disco or nightclub. That Canon A1 camera got me in places and situations I wouldn’t thought possible.
I also liked helping people if I could? Showed them how to do things for free. Always had time to teach people. I am now able to help people because of my work with my other business.
I left school without qualifications, but made up for it in the Royal Air Force. Then continued my interest in photography.
