Robert was formerly a teacher of Design & Technology and a Housemaster in a Boarding School, in the Cotswolds. He and his wife Lizzie now live in the idyllic market town of Moreton in Marsh in Gloucestershire.

Robert, a member of the Royal Photographic Society was awarded a RPS distinction in 2014.
Robert aspires to being a social and documentary photographer of standing, seeing himself working very much in a contemporary vein. However, mechanical things are always a magnet to him and his camera, wherever they are or whatever they might be doing. Robert used to shoot full frame but now enjoys the lightweight freedom and the advanced technology of an Olympus OM-D M5 II. However when the mood takes him, he still enjoys the pleasure of using his Leica M6 and a 50mm Summilux with a roll of Kodak Tri-X 400 discretely loaded.
The latest arrival is a silver Olympus Pen F, replacing the second M5 II titanium body. This wonderfully 'retro' technological box of tricks is a delight.
The Pen F even simulates Tri-X with 'real digital grain', fun, as well as being a serious photographic tool with sensational ergonomic and intuitive application.

Robert, a member of the MSRVS, is a keen model engineer; in his retirement he has built a third full-size miniature Foden 6ton Steam Wagon, in his garage/workshop. Robert is a life long enthusiast of steam and all things mechanical.

Robert and his wife Lizzie are active members of the Austin Ten Drivers' Club and particularly enjoy outings in their award winning 1933 Austin Ten 2 seater and dickey.
