I was a professional Industrial / Commercial photographer for over 26 years, before leaving commissioned work to become a full-time Stock Photographer. I first started shooting stock in 1972 as a supplement to my commissioned work, however, since early 2001 my entire income has come from shooting Stock images. I now have just over 100,000 image placements in my current multi-agency portfolio. Most of my income comes from the range of mainstream agencies I submit to. The 11 microstock sites I submit to now produce about 30% of my total income. Dreamstime sales account for about 12% of my total turnover. My portfolio includes RM, RF and Editorial images. Some images are exclusive some non-exclusive. Have a look at my list of 91 COLLECTIONS Check them out here ------------> Well over half of my work is now Travel or Wildlife Photography. I'm a 'travelaholic' and have so far visited 96 countries & territories on all seven continents, including both Antarctica and the Arctic (Greenland, Svalbard Islands and the North Atlantic sea ice).

Canon 5D Mk4 with a Canon 5D Mk3 as my backup camera. Plus a wide range of Canon lenses and accessories from 15mm fisheye to 500mm telephoto. I also have a 90mm tilt-shift lens which is really useful for controlling depth of field in studio tabletop work and for architectural photography. In the studio I use mostly Elinchrom lighting equipment. I also use a Hosemaster fiber-optic light painting system. My computers and laptops are all high-end Apple Mac Pro running Photoshop CC & ******** RAW. Every image is meticulously retouched and corrected to the highest standards. I make a continual investment in new technology and have a 100% digital workflow.
