Your Bio

Welcome to my website.

In common with many photographers my pictures vanished from the internet when Fotopic ceased trading.

In addition to new material, this site contains old collections that have been transferred from Fotopic. Collections that have been transferred may have no captions or be out of order. There is no need to tell me about this. I am working through all the collections as time permits.

If you need a picture please contact me at trains@ntlworld.com
