Finishing formal education at 15 with a prize for Best Swiss Photographs, I had a gap weekend then became a Post Boy at ATV in Kingsway, a major company in the ITV Network. I worked unpaid at weekends as a Runner on many live programmes such as "Saturday Spectacular", "Oh Boy!", "Joan & Leslie", and "The Dickie Henderson Show".

I was privileged to have worked for Lew Grade and ATV through the most inventive and adventurous days of British television as a Cameraman at Wood Green, Highbury, Foley Street and Hackney studios before ATV Elstree. Outside Broadcasts and location work ranged from "Sunday Night at the London Palladium" to drama inserts and sport; Racing, Wrestling, Football and a British Formula One Grand Prix.

Following a 20 year gap, I return occasionally to being a Cameraman, operating the main camera on a four camera recording of ballets in Kyoto, Japan where I have shot “Sleeping Beauty”, “Peter Pan”, “Cinderella”, “La Bayadere” and “Coppelia”.
