As a photographer I have worked on campaigns and projects across the world since the mid nineteen eighties. My professional website http://www.hallmarkimaging.com has a small selection of work I have done over the years.
I began teaching on the first of September 2000 after completing my Master's degree at The London College of Printing. The intention then was to try it out for a couple of years to see if I liked it. Now twenty years later I think I can accurately answer that question. I do.
I have since taught at a number of Universities and have developed courses and modules which maintain the currency of academic knowledge on photography in a changing world.
I became interested in the tension between light and dark when I began studying for my Master's degree. Then, as now I saw photographic practice as exploring this domain. Neither one extreme or the other it was able to comment on the visible world, though the closer one gets to either extreme the more radical the images become.
Over the last ten years I have been involved in a number of publicly funded multi-agency projects. From an initial approach or question I have developed a series of projects which have been funded (£100K+) and have improved people's lives as a result.
