Terry Piper. The Hat Man.
I had just moved to Somerset and I was thinking about a new photographic project. Fortunately I was introduced to a group of guys in a pub. One of them collected hats, he had over a hundred hats. I suggested that would love to photograph him and his hats. This answered some of the requirements I wanted from a photography project, to show the beautiful landscapes of Somerset, with portraits of Terry and his hats.

Putney People And Places
I lived in Putney, South West London for over 25 years. It was the perfect enviroment to bring up my family. I loved being near river Thames, the open spaces and the many characters.
Most of these landscape where photographed with Kodax Trix film and printed in the darkroom.
This is a area which has always fascinated me. The power station, the narrow gauge steam trains, the fishing boats, the pebble beach, the lighthouse,the lifeboat station, the small beach houses. A photographers dream.
Bench In SW15
This Bench in SW15 is not a great looking bench, it doesn't even look comfortable to sit on. But every day there are different types of people who sit there. The only advantage the bench has is it faces south so it becomes the sun bench. I go past this bench in SW15 every day and I found it interesting the types of people who sat there so I decided to record some of the visitors to the bench in SW15.

The Oyster Farm Under The Sea
When I first arrived at the Oyster farm all I could see was the sea. After 5 hours the sea had disappeared and the view was racks full of oyster bags. Revealing the Oyster farm under the sea.
Drawing is a different way of looking. I find it a great aid to my photography.
