I live in Great Bardfield which is my favourite place – although when it comes to favourite places Bali is a close second.  I love photographic opportunities and the people and culture there are amazing. I really enjoy photography in particular aviation and landscape.

Most of my aviation photos are taken during airshows – not commercial aircraft though, they bore me to tears fast and loud every day.

My wife and I and usually a few friends enjoy a good old walk of the long distance type – not just to the shops!  A 20+ mile stomp is a great day out for us.

I’ve been in the automotive industry for over 30 years – how did that happen?!

Day to day I can be found driving the mission control desk and running the office and workshop.  There’s usually a fair amount of coffee involved too.

There’s another big part to my life and that is the fire service … more to come on this.

Chris asked me when we were writing this section who had inspired me the most in my life and the answer is easy ‘my Dad’.
