My work is printed in my ‘studio’ at home on an Epson Stylus Photo R3000. The paper is printed on Fine Art Ink Jet paper by Hahnemühle.

If a print is required that is larger than A3+ (48.3 x 32.9cm), then I would use the best regional printer, Salt of the Earth at Shaftesbury.

My camera is a Canon 5D III and I shoot in colour. That said, I prefer to print in Absolute Black and White (ABW). This method ensures there is no magenta or cyan tint, no matter what lighting is used at home or in a gallery. Also, in my view ABW prints, with dark charcoal frames and double matte, sits well beside a watercolour or oil painting.

Just because I sell quite well, I don’t call myself a professional photographer, I prefer ‘high end amateur’. I do a lot of pro bono work for locals or friends, in order to gain experience.

My deep down preference is constructing cartoons. These are produced extracting a pen and ink drawing, painted with gouache, and placing it in a photo or a reproduction of a classic work. Currently, I am producing one a week for a web based news sheet.
