During his postgraduate study, he was awarded several scholarships (including the Leverhulme Scholarship 1957) and the Royal Academy Gold Medal, 1958.

After becoming a full-time tutor at Winchester School of Art in 1962 and retiring in 1986, he devoted himself full-time to his art.

“There can, in my view, be a link between photography and print making, in the shape of two essential factors: the block or plate, generally termed as relief printing, and the negative or file, when referring to the digital process. Both act as an intermediate starting point for a wide range of future work and it is where the Artist/Photographer would aim to exploit their visual and perceptive boundaries. While that could be a rather idealistic view, photography often has the additional ingredient of the client, which may significantly change the role of the photographer.”
