My photography

This site contains a small selection of my travel and ‘people’ photography from around 2005 onward.

My street photography pictures fall in line with David Gibson's definition "...street photography can be applied to any photographs taken in a public space, with or without the inclusion of people, which are entirely natural, and not set up. Street photography is real, it is ordinary life made extraordinary by a great variety of photographers."

The photos are not staged or posed, I prefer candid portraits generally without interaction, although I don’t try to hide what I am doing. I use short lenses so am pretty close, occasionally I will give a smile or say thanks afterwards. You can find my newest pictures on Instagram. There is further information on the equipment I use here.


Earlier photos are on Ilford and Fuji film with Nikon SLRs and Leica rangefinders, I miss processing film. Now using mostly digital, pictures are with Nikon DSLR cameras, Leica X typ 113 and more recently, Olympus OM-D micro four thirds. Full equipment list here.
