Despite a tremor in his left hand, Pete manages to shoot “street” in gritty and edgy black and white. His “street shooter” is ever present in a pocket or a bag. His other love is London, especially at night where he takes in panoramic views along the Thames from Tower Bridge to Westminster. Many of his photographs are 5 or 9 shots seamlessly stitched together.

Pete is a member of Great Notley Photography Club and leads the “street” section for club members, organising outings to areas where the most interesting street life can be found.

His work has appeared in Essex Life Magazine and his work is also sold on-line

Pete lives in Hutton, is married to Linda and is a father of 2 and grandfather of 3 children. He retired from the police after 30 years service (15 on fraud investigation) After stints with a major investment bank in the city and latterly as a member of the BBC Investigation Service…..he has called it a day to concentrate on his photography”.
