Tell us a little about yourself
Happy childhood in England during World War II.
Off to sea in Merchant Navy and had a great time navigating super-tankers around the World for ten years 1956-‘66
Then management consultancy + hotel and shop ownership + editing books and magazines + pro photography + journalism … although not all at the same time.
Married with two children and two grand- children.
Have always lived on the sea or by the sea.
Now happily and healthily drifted into retirement with time to play with old non-digital cameras.
Feel I ought to learn Photoshop but have neither the funds nor the inclination. In my photos as in my life … what you see is what you get.
What one thing are you most proud of in your 74 years?
Taking the risky step of quitting a salaried job to go self employed way back in ’68 when it was almost unheard of in England.
What one thing you want to do before you reach 100?
Make a positive difference to at least one more life.
What piece of advice would you give your 10 year old self?
You can achieve whatever you want if you are prepared to invest the time and know what you really, really want.
