Ocean Images
Apart from my commercial photography I combine my love of scuba diving with creating photographic images. I wanted a simple approach and went for rangefinder Nikonos V cameras and 1600 ASA Fuji Neopan film with available light; which allowed me to dive, and enjoy the underwater world unencumbered by bulky housings, extension arms, strobes etc. Underwater reportage ! None of my images are digitally created or computer manipulated. These images are available to licence for commercial advertising, design and editorial purposes. I also have some T shirts and limited edition prints featuring so...
Queen
I was fortunate to spend many years in the 1970's and 1980's in the music business - most of those working for rock band Queen. I spent my life traveling the world with one of its biggest and greatest bands. It was an amazing journey and experience - which I am grateful to have taken part in. It's only Rock 'n' Roll ............... and I liked it. Please click on the sections on the menu to see some of my memories. * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *...

Photos
From time to time I sell my 'Royal Robes' signed limited edition print of Freddie on ebay. It is listed as: Freddie Mercury Queen Print Ltd edition BEST PROVENANCE Unique image of Queen's legendary singer Freddie Mercury. Best Possible Provenance. A2 size poster print on matt art card ( 595x420mm - 23 1/2 x 16 1/2inches) signed and numbered limited edition. Originally a limited edition of 1200, but due to loss and damage I estimate only approx 400 exist world wide. This image of Freddie was done spontaneously one evening in 1987 in Peter's studio after a phone call from Freddie, who ...
Passes
This section is in the process of being updated Backstage passes came into existence around the time roadies became Road Crew. In the old days having long hair, a scruffy appearance and saying "I'm with the band" was enough to gain access to all areas. But security tightened and a plastic lapel conference badge with sticky dymo label strips was the cool accessory to wear and impress. Shortly afterwards, the stick on pass, followed by the laminate which were issued to touring staff and guests. One method of tightening security were to have your name or your photo on passes ass...
Clothing
This section is in the process of being updated Over the years various forms of Queen clothing was produced. Apart from the official and unofficial merchandise at concerts; jackets, T shirts, sweatshirts etc were made solely for the band and crew by the tour manager, record company, promoter, transport companies, merchandiser etc. There are fakes around and some items that the fan club produced and sold are being passed off on ebay as official crew clothing. Generally a tour jacket would have the person's name embroidered on it and a reference to what tour, year, continent etc. In the US ...
Miscellaneous
This section is in the process of being updated First acetate of 'We Will Rock You' from the world-famous Abbey Road studios. 1977. I am certainly no authority on Queen records (though I do have a blue Bo Rhap from the limited edition of 200 - No 195 - courtesy of Fred) but items connected directly to touring, such as itineraries, jackets, T shirts, passes etc, I have a very good memory for. As well as a unique recollection of other items that passed through..... As to avoiding fake Queen items; I would always suggest that you always ask for provenance from the seller. Who are t...
