JOURNALIST
Member: London Press Club  

Most of my journalism has been articles about professional television production for cameramen, lighting directors, programme producers and directors. I had a regular column "Through the Viewfinder" in the American magazine "Television Technology" for several years with my own photographs, a title I used for my book about television camerawork published in 2009. For several years I wrote a "Travel Tips" column for a stock photography website based in Wisconsin, USA.
