Now an independent curator, photographer, author and former Curator of Photography at the Fox Talbot Museum, from 1989 through to the Summer of 2004; prior to which he was Head of Photography in the Department of Visual Communication, Bath Academy of Art
Over the same period of time I have taught photography at postgraduate level on extra mural courses at the Centro de Ricerca e Archivazione, a faculty of the University of Pordenone, Italy from 1994 to 2002, and through the auspices of The
British Council, at the University of Belo Horizonte, Brazil, 1992 & 1993

Between 1996 and 2002 I worked on the setting up of the
IkonsCentre site and online database for the University of Pordenone whcih linked together three European photographic archives: The Fox Talbot Museum (NB the collection is now part of The British Library, Department of Manuscript Archive), The Lessing KunstArchiv and the CRAF Archiv, Spilembergo under the European Community Raphaello and Sepia Initiatives.
