aboutME

I have been a keen photographer for many years now, enjoying capturing images of a range of genres including portrait, event, travel and wildlife.

 I have had a camera of some kind in my hand for as long as I can remember now!  I think my grandad, David Searle, is responsible for my passion for photography. For 11 years during the 1950s and 1960s, my grandad was assistant to Norman Parkinson, the highly acclaimed Vogue portrait and fashion photographer. During his time my grandad assisted Parkinson photographing famous models,  musicians (such as the Beatles) and even royalty, including HRH Queen Elizabeth ll at her coronation in Westminster Abbey.
