graduated from Goldsmiths College, London, in 1970 with a degree
in graphic design, and worked in design and photographic studios
in the south east of England for a few years.
1976 I started my own freelance business, Stonecastle Graphics,
and I now specialise in creating, designing and Œpackaging¹
illustrated books for major UK publishers. I am a designer, photographer
and artist I have exhibited paintings at the Royal Academy Summer
Exhibition and my photographs have appeared on the covers and
pages of numerous books.
am fascinated by light and pattern in both naturalistic and urban
environments, and my photographs attempt to capture the effects
of sunlight, texture and shadow in everyday moments. I also combine
traditional photography with digital manipulation to create multi-layer
graphics and posters.
September 2001 I was in New York with my wife and daughter and
we witnessed the devastating terrorist attack on the Twin Towers
of the WTC on the morning of the 11th. I captured some of those
moments on film. Some of these images have been published in national
newspapers and magazines and appeared in a special memorial exhibition
³Impact² at the Old Saatchi Gallery in London on the
first anniversary of the attack all proceeds were donated to the
official NY Firefighters Disaster Fund. More of my 9/11 pictures
can be seen on my website
am continuing to experiment with photography, exploring traditional
and digital image-making in both black & white and colour.
