Although I work digitally, I started off as a conventional B&W Printer. Even now it’s still more the aesthetic rather than technical aspect of printing digitally that interests me. I prefer to talk in terms of stops and vignettes rather than histograms and curves.

With the development of the digital bromide process it allows me to utilise the skills I’ve developed in the darkroom with all the benefits of working in a digital medium. It’s important to me to be able to interpret and enable the vision of a photographer or artist to become reality – at the end of the day it’s what’s in the frame that counts.
