Halifax Bombing 1990
The Very First Print
This was the first photo that I had printed in the press. It’s of the bomb disposal unit waiting to send their robot into the office of the Halifax Army Careers Office, New Road.
A bomb had exploded at around 11pm February 25th 1990 causing a small amount of damage. Read more on this story.

I have been a keen photographer since the late 80’s, I spent a little time as a freelancer for the local press: The Halifax Evening Courier, Bradford Telegraph and Argos and the Yorkshire Post newspapers.
In 1993 I was the staff photographer for the ill fated Leeds ‘Northern Star’ magazine which was formerly known as Leeds Other Paper that sadly closed down in 1994 after 20 years.
In 1997 I was accepted amongst the staff at Ross Parry News Agency in Leeds where I stayed for 3 years. I have also contributed to El Mundo, Spain’s daily newspaper and various other international publications.
Since the age of digital photography came along in the early noughties photography has mainly been a hobby for me. Each photo that you see on this website has been taken by me over the last 30 years.
V97' Saturday 16th August. Temple Newsam, Leeds.
More photo’s to follow shortly.
Liam Gallagher, the bad boy of Oasis.
Oasis at the Sheffield Arena, UK April 1995.
At the time I had a knackered old flash which seemed to take forever to cycle, it was between flashes when Liam came over to me and posed with a snarl. Then there was the 2 finger stance and I was waiting for the flash indicator to go green… and I waited, and waited.
Liam being the gentleman that he is held his pose, finally after what seemed an age the flash was ready resulting in this picture.
Cheers Liam, you’re not really the bad boy people thought you were.
