I’ve been doing this for quite awhile now…

This website is where I publish both my professional & personal photography work. I see this as a cumulative, ongoing project that will continue to evolve as time goes by.

The work includes some of my favourite images of the moment, and as equally  important, from the past. There are frequent changes, and the site will continually develop.

In addition to this, I regularly publish articles about photography and other related subjects, that you may find useful. Hopefully some of the articles may offer a little insight to beginners, and old pros alike, and there’s lots of opportunity to engage with comments on the articles. Why not take a look now?

If you see an image you would like to use for your project, commercial or personal, you can buy a licence from my library that is exclusively on Alamy:

Colin’s Bio:

I have been working in photography, graphic arts, reproduction, photo processing & web design, and latterly consulting.

Yep, that’s quite awhile – 43 years.

Over this period I have seen the rise of digital revolution and its effect on the industry and the world.

Pre 1978:

At my Grammar school, I discovered the joys of black and white photography. Using a Zenith E camera, I began to discover and understand first principles. Things were more straight forward then. The thought of auto-focus and filmless cameras seemed as far away as wireless telephones and personal computers.

Having left school, I attended Art College, studying Sculpture and Ceramics at Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts in London, UK.

Post 1978:

I started my career in creative arts back in autumn 1978, mixing photo processing chemicals at one of London’s professional processing laboratories. These were very common at that time. I moved from lab to lab, picking up invaluable experience in photo processing and graphics arts techniques. This includes, but is not limited to: Photo processing: Interneg production, Kodak: C22, C41, E4, E6 Film processing. C Type, R Type, R14 Type Photo printing. I am a professional colour printer and duper. I learned Photo composition under Peter Grant at Gilcrest Studios in Covent Garden. I spent far too much time in the photo processing industry smile
This period finished when I had reached a point where I could go no further than as a production manager at CETA Print.

I became a professional photographer’s assistant in the late 1980s. I did this for 5 years. I have worked with over 20 London based profesional photographers. This has given me a very broad view on the photographic industry. In retrospect, becoming a Photographer’s Assistant was the most astute career decision I ever made. It enabled me to travel the world, visiting exciting places and meeting some great people. During this period I worked in fashion, advertising, travel, editorial, architectural and portraiture. In fact, I was working as a freelance assistant around 3-4 days a week!
From this came the opportunity to work for the British Railways, the national railway network here in the UK.

After that I spring boarded in to professional photography, working with magazines and advertising agencies. Including Vogue and Tatler. Some of that work is present on this site, but I am in the process of digitising it and that’s like painting the Forth Railway Bridge!

I spent 10 years shooting on 5×4 for architectural practices, advertising agencies and magazines.
In 1996 digital photography had impacted the professional market and it was in flux. I decided to diversify at that time, and started a multimedia company with another photographer, this morphed into a web agency and I have been both shooting professionally and creating pro-websites for high end clients ever since…

I hope you enjoy viewing the images and work. You can contact me here. – Colin
