A JOURNEY THROUGH MY CREATIVE WORK FROM 1989 TO THE PRESENT AND BEYOND..........

 

With any story ....a begining.....for me it started late in 1988 when I decided to take my work into a new direction .

Following nineteen years of photography covering Portraits , Weddings  and General Advertising work , I moved into the UK Toy Industry and Children's Comics .

This new direction for me over the next thirty years would use my creative talents and imagination across many areas of the Toy Industry , Children's Publishing Projects and across the web .

 

I have worked with many Companies over these years.....with big and small projects.....the list of the Companies and the Products are endless...many I don't remember now they were extremely busy times.......but here are some of them.....Kenner Toys - Bluebird Toys - Hasbro Toys - Mattel Toys - Marvel Comics - Panini Comics - Titan Comics - MGA Toys USA  - Toontastic Comics - Cartoon Network Comic - Warner Bros Looney Toons - GEMMA Cards - Pedigree Books  and many more......the best in the business have passed through my studios....

 

ACTION MAN - THE BRATZ - MASTERS OF THE UNIVERSE - GI JOE ACTION FORCE - LARA CROFT TOMB RAIDER - TRANSFORMERS - BUTT UGLY MARTIANS - POWER RANGERS - QUAKE 2 - MASK - MEGA FORCE - MANTA FORCE - MIGHTY MAX - BETTY SPAGHETTI - PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN - SPIDERMAN - DIGIMON - and my own Photo-Story productions have now been released to join them on the web....SEASTAR 5 - SINBAD GOLD RAIDER HEROES - STARJET RANGERS 2400AD.........

 

I hope you enjoy looking through my work.......
