Interests and Leisure
With three young children and a busy career I have almost no time for hobbies but have enjoyed building a suite of mahogany bedroom furniture for my young son and painting a frieze in my daughters' bedroom, an appropriate landscape with all the scenes from the Jungle Book.

My interests include photography, music, art, travel and meeting people from different walks of life. I have always enjoyed reading biographies and fiction but do not have the time these days. I love good food and wine. Before I became a family man I enjoyed a skiing holiday every year. I have had great pleasure from helping my wife to develop our garden and learning a little about this fascinating subject.

With the assistance of a friend I have recently started to produce CD recordings for amateur musicians, a busman's holiday but very enjoyable. I have attended a 37 week Music Recording and CD Mastering night class and have invested in several studio quality microphones and a 24 track, high resolution digital studio.

Corporate & Non Broadcast Video Experience
I have spent about 15 years working on a wide variety of single and multi-camera shoots, mainly on location but also in studios. My clients vary from international corporations to smaller businesses. I work to television standards shooting concerts, major engineering projects, training courses, seminars and product launches. I have considerable experience of shooting from helicopters and fixed wing aircraft, on ships and small boats all around the world. I have filmed sea trials of ships and submarines and have worked on many offshore oil and gas rigs and platforms.

I have owned 3 machine edit suites since the 1980s and now have an Avid online quality digital editing system for the highest quality, flexibility and most efficient editing.
corporate video productions
On graduation I established myself as a freelance advertising and corporate photographer. This service gradually developed into a video based business in the 1980's.
music cd recording
As a student I spent 4 years working in studios playing with light and shooting advertising photographs. I graduated in 1979.
