Born 1952 in Kingston near London to a Canadian father (who later disputed this) and a Glaswegian mother.
Educated at Reading School and London University. No degree.
Discovered photography in 1974 and became consumed by it. Largely self-taught – some evening classes. I learned from photographers like Diane Arbus and Josef Koudelka, later Ray K. Metzger and William Eggleston.and many others.
Started freelancing in 1976 and after a few exciting years in London, moved to Berlin at the beginning of 1983.
Have worked internationally for many magazines and pursued personal projects in exhibitions and on Flickr.
Will get German nationality in a few weeks.
