JOURNALIST

Most of my articles have been about professional television production for cameramen, lighting directors, programme producers and directors.

I had a regular column, "Through the Viewfinder", in the American magazine "Television Technology" for several years with many using my own photographs, a title I used for my book about television camerawork published in 2009.

For several years I wrote a ‘Travel Tips’ column for a stock photography website based in Wisconsin, USA.
