About me and this blog

I’m a publisher, photographer, journalist and musician:

I’ve been a keen photographer for over 35 years. I started my career in photographic retail, then progressed my passion by writing for magazines, which eventually got me a job working in an editorial team. I moved through the ranks to editor and then left to set up my own publishing company in 2000. We produced a range of web sites and subscription based magazines. I retired from this in 2014.

I still take plenty of photographs and now prefer to document my travel adventures and have written and designed several photography books and been the presenter on a digital photography video.  I also enjoy writing music using Logic on a Mac


invitesThis blog is a kind of diary and place to store my memories.
Over the years as a journalist I was invited all over the world on press trips (they used to be called Jollies but I think those days are over). And I decide it was time to put down all the stuff that’s happened that I can remember or have souvenirs for in the form of an online timeline.

So I’ll be dragging stuff out of boxes, scanning and uploading.

If you were with me at any of the events and I haven’t listed you please drop me a note and I’ll add you. Also if you want to add any photos I can sort that too.

I will also be adding stuff I’ve done from early years to present day – a bit like a Facebook timeline.  So expect to see diary dates, gigs, excursions, events etc.
