I am always working towards making a photograph which has both a meaning for me and a connection with other individuals who find the picture interesting. This was also true of my news work, at the end of a story I emailed my pictures off to the newspapers in the simply hope of seeing my work in next mornings paper. Amazingly I often did! Gallery pictures have become a much bigger challenge to me than simply following the news.

One picture at a time is how I have to work, in practice with long gaps because I am divided between Daily Mail, family and what I call My Work. I hope that my exhibition pictures will grow in number and substance.

Showing work is one thing, making someone fall in love with my pictures is much more.
