“I am a life-long photographer. I processed my first roll of film in a darkroom when I was eight years old with my father Ron Nelson who was a London commercial and industrial photographer. I knew at a young age that being a photographer is what I wanted to do.
Over the years I have experienced almost every technical skill associated with the craft.
Most recentlyI have engaged in what is probably the most rewarding technique that I have learned…drawing on my photographs.”
