In a former life (before my newsletter started doing so well that I couldn’t afford to keep working in a job) I was a photographer. Mainly editorial, which means working for magazines and newspapers, though I started out photographing nasty things for the police in England and as a sideline snapped “Girl Friday” pictures for a local newspaper. They were non-nude glamour, and as a young, unattached man, it was a great way of meeting new girls 🙂
Before long I did work for many of England’s top newspapers (mainly football) and a number of magazines, plus travel stuff the British Tourist Authority.
Moving to Australia I did advertising and publicity shots for a charity (as well as working there as a copywriter/publicist) then became Chief Photographer on a motoring magazine, later moving into newspaper work where I ended up as chief photographer on a daily paper where I stayed for years until quitting to earn money online.
I’ve also worked on assignment for heaps of magazines including most of the leading womens mags. Had some great assignments like shooting sport in Asia, and shooting travel photos in the jungles of Borneo.
Now I mainly take holiday ‘snaps’, well travel pics I guess, and landscapes shot from my house and garden in the wilds of Queensland, Australia.
