I take photographs on film and print on traditional silver gelatin paper to achieve the highest quality prints currently possible.


Another strong motivation for staying with black and white film, rather than going the popular route of using digital, is the known long lifetime of processed negatives and prints. Film cameras also work at -30C in the mountains in winter, I'm not sure digital cameras would fare so well because of their reliance on batteries..


Over the years this has built an approach to my photography where I believe every picture I take is part of the historical record for wherever I am taking photographs. They are a blend of record and artistry. Some more record, some more artistry depending on the subject and conditions, especially light and weather. All of them are a part of me.


Who knows, one day my negatives could be as important as those of Francis Frith, a Victorian photographer who comprehensively recorded English towns, villages and life in England.
