I’m a freelance journalist, based in the UK. I write about a number of topics but my main beat is covering commercial and industrial printing. I’ve written articles for many magazines over the years, mostly in the UK, but also as far flung as India and Australia and my work has been translated into other languages from German to Japanese.
I can be contacted from a form here:
Journalism is printing what someone else does not want printed: everything else is public relations.George Orwell
Printing and Manufacturing Journal
I publish a website – Printing and Manufacturing Journal – that covers various aspects of commercial printing, including labelling and packaging printing as well as display graphics. This led me to an interest in industrial printing, including textile printing for garments and decor, plus various types of manufacturing that also use printing technology. Inevitably that also includes 3D printing, also known as additive manufacturing.
Besides writing, I also do a fair amount of photography, which is covered at a separate website here. My photography is mainly editorial in nature, which reflects my work as a journalist, as well as some portraiture and fine art. I mostly shoot digital but rarely do much post-processing beyond tone mapping and light cropping – just what we used to do in a dark room with film.
