About Me


September 2012

Just a bit about me. I live in Harlow in Essex with my wife Daphne, five guitars – latest acquisition is a Taylor acoustic ( what a brilliant guitar ) , several cameras – I’m a Nikon man, latest addition is a D800 – and a myriad of other techie toys.

I’ve written and self-published three novels: ‘The Outcrop’, ‘Spiral’ and ‘The Darkest of Lies’ ( all available through Amazon [ hint, hint ] ). And there may yet be a fourth. Hence the ‘Pronouns’ in Pixels and Pronouns.

I was a police officer in London for just over 30 years (now retired), and have been into photography since I was n-n-nineteen ( or thereabouts! ). I ran my own wedding photography business for ten years after retiring from the Met and I have a professional photographic qualification – LRPS – through the Royal Photographic Society. I’m currently working towards my ARPS qualification, putting together a panel of fifteen photographs and a supporting Statement of Intent.

I’m also a member of the Harlow Seniors Photographic Group. You can visit their website, and see some of their work, here .

  1. Oh my, what a great blog.

    Brilliant photographs.

    I’ll have a real root around it tommorrow, but impressed with what I’ve seen so far – if a tad jealous to be honest.

    Good to hear from you! I’m glad you like the blog – and the photos (my other passion!).

    My problem is that I’m not a regular blogger – so this gets updated as and when!! Is that good or bad? I’m not sure.

    Anyway, thanks for the kind words.

    All the best
