Fisherman on Vembanad Lake

I set up the camera on a tripod and waited a long time for this moment. I had to time the shutter to release at exactly te split second that the fisherman was properly framed. I didn't want to drop quality by using a burst mode.

The Jokhang in Lhasa Tibet

This holiest of shrines is filled with candles and is hot and slippery with wax. Hand holding was the only option and it required a balance between choosing the right film in this case Fuji Professional 200 ASA shutter speed and aperture to get this right, and of course a steady hand.

Roof of the world

A stupendous view of a range of some of the highest mountains on the planet, all these were well over 5,000 meters and the high pass offered a great view.

Full emersion on the Ganges

Our Services

( see products for image rights prints and framed prints )



I am very happy to undertake assignements and welcome approaches. If the assignment is linked to travel I will be very accommodating on fees.If it's a commercial venture I'd charge a fair commercial price , and for charity or local work a reduced price. I charge half my rate for travel plus expenses.


I will undertake portraits from my home studio or at your home. As a pro/am I cannot offer all the specialist alternatives of a fully equiped studio but I can offer value for money and a lot more flexibility in framing and printing options than most.
