He joined the editorial staff of Practical Photography magazine in 1985 where he worked for 19 years, over ten years of which he was the title’s editor. In 2003, he joined Archant Specialist as editorial director of its imaging titles, which included Professional Photographer, Which Digital Camera and Photography Monthly.
