I take photographs of a broad range of subjects, but specialise in reportage/street photography/candids/environmental portraiture


I have developed strategies for taking photographs of people which are unobtrusive and non-confrontational


I like to think that I can build up a good rapport with people who are aware of or have consented to being photographed


My photographs are technically good but not perfect

Photography was in the family. Brother and both parents had cameras; father and brother active amateur photographers with darkroom facilities at home.


Early memories of the walk-in pantry being converted into a darkroom (where did all the food go?) and long strips of film swirling around the bathtub. Sitting in the darkroom under the red light, wanting to be involved with the magical enlarge and print process but probably just getting in the way...

"Constructivism is an emerging view of learning that rests on the idea that new information is added to existing mental frameworks... social Constructivism is based on the assumption that members of a given social network mutually negotiate meanings of ideas and practices." John W. Schell

Photographic communities are constantly defining and redefining what a photograph is, especially in the light of digital technologies


Photographers' practice is influenced by current and historical perceptions of the nature of photography


Transformational learning
Transformational Learning historical perceptions of the nature of photography


"Often considered a form of constructivism, transformational learning is based on reflection that transforms the beliefs, attitudes, opinions, and emotions of the learners. Mezirow believes that transformational learning is based on “disorienting dilemmas” or situations that are outside of our usual world views. To resolve the dissonance, the learner must create new ways of interpreting their experiences. This leads to a new self-view and deeper meaning based on insight. Transformational learning encourages, reflection and critical thought, more receptiveness to the paradigms of others, and acceptance of new ideas." John W. Schell

Disruptive technologies
Disruptive technologies subject and the viewer?


"Disruptive technologies always work democratically: they allow increasing numbers of people to have access to those things which were previously very rare, expensive, or difficult to produce. Photography allows anyone to own a detailed, realistic picture of anything which can be photographed such as a portrait. Prior to its invention, high-quality portraiture was the exclusive domain of the elites, due largely to the level of technical skill required of painters. Photography "short-circuited" this process. It is no accident that the majority of images from the first fifty years of photography are portraits and other subjects well-known from paintings. In attempting to demonstrate that it was art by imitating painting, photography proved to be the archetypal disruptive technology: it replaced painting by doing what painters did, only cheaper and more often". Michael Betancourt

"According to philosopher Michel Foucault, power and knowledge reinforce each other. Anthropologists wield power over non-Westerners through ways of photo-colonialism. The camera can be seen as analogous to Jeremy Bentham's Panopticon but non-monolithic..." Joyce Tanjuakio
