This website is largely devoted to two projects, both involving historical buildings in China. The first, and certainly the largest, is to photograph the remaining foreign-inspired buildings, of which there are many, in China's former treaty ports and leased territories. Although I have yet to cover several buildings in Shanghai, Tianjin and Hankou, this project is now approaching completion.
There is also a gallery of my limited landscape work and, for the ultimate landscape, one of panorama images. Finally, there is a small collection of people I have met on my travels.
Please contact me should you wish to use any of these images. I am available for commissioned work but do not seek payment for non-commercial purposes and am keen to support heritage projects, historical publications and anything involving education.
Latest updates: New Declared Monument galleries on the Tung Wah Museum and King Yin Lei (August 2013). New gallery on the Asiatic Petroleum Company in the Treaty Port Special Collection, added Panoramas and, in the City, Land & Seascapes gallery, several new images of Hong Kong (September 2013).
“Master photographers are very, very passionate. It's simply not an option to be anything but passionate if you want to succeed. If the photographer ends up short on passion, the image will end up short of the mark.”
