Hello folks,

I've officially retired from professional photography.

I'm currently playing with video and running my haulage company.  Not in that order LOL...

I've left most of the content / pictures... I previously published here for your enjoyment.

Please note: All of the photos on this site are covered under copyright and therefore must not be re-produced, with the exception of search engines whom are welcome to use them for linking to this site.

I'd like to thank all of my previous clients, both the famous and not so famous.  It's been a real pleasure to work with all of you.

I'd also like to offer a tribute to Antonio Carluccio, I got to know Antonio quite well over a few years, he had the largest list of 'off the cuff' jokes you could imagine - his delivery and timing were impeccable.  My culinary claim to fame is that I once worked in his kitchen.  Well, someone had to peel the spuds and I just happened to be there.
He was a great person to work with, a very cheeky chap and what you see is what you got with Antonio.  He was incredibly generous with his time and loved meeting people and they loved him right back.
There's an awful lot of famous cooks out there who would not be where they are today if not for him.  Great man and missed by everyone.

Thanks again.
Dave
