After education at Chelsea and at Ravensbourne art schools I worked for a number of years in tv*, then in a university teaching writing. I won the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize, a Writers’ Guild award and a MWA ‘Edgar’ as a writer. Photography was my first and most constant love, though.  At present I am compiling a photographic and painting response to the beautiful river Stour with my wife, the painter Sarah Milne.
