I was born in the Buckinghamshire village of Holmer Green in 1942, and played as a child in the local Beech woods. I have been taking photographs since I was 12 years old.
The countryside and the trades and traditions of those that shaped it over centuries have always fascinated me and influenced my work.
I've spent a lifetime researching, recording and collecting anything about the rural past and today am a well-known artist craftsman, demonstrator, international lecturer and photo-journalist who writes regular articles for the woodworking press.
