“Born by the sea, raised by a woodsman in a forest, in a parallel universe I’m building boats. In this world I confine people to a rectangular box and press a button. Somehow it makes sense.
I’ve travelled a lot, sometimes people pay me to do it, other times I take in the view and a cold beer. My exploring led me to Bristol in 1998, I only intended to stay for a weekend but the city got a hold of me and I’ve been here ever since. However, I still don’t like cider. Did you know we have a mayor who only wears red trousers?
I started my career as a journalist, training on a newspaper, working on a golf magazine and then a freelance editor. I gave this up in 2006 to become a freelance photographer. Some people thought it was a crazy move but I now take a lot of pictures and people pay me for it. The boat building will have to wait.”
