I have been shooting black and white film and a Darkroom technician  for over 30 years, its been one of my passions all my working life.  In 2012 i am proud to say I was approached by Ilford Photo to become one of their Analogue Artisan Partners to teach film photography, processing skills and  darkroom printing technician.  so you can rest assured that you are in safe hands. I keep my darkroom workshops to a very small group, a maximum of two people, allowing plenty of one to one time with me.

Keith was born in 1959 in Yorkshire, England. His love of photography began at the age of thirteen while on a trip to Lagos, Nigeria with his parents. On his return, he successfully exhibited and presented his work at his school.

Keith’s inspiration comes from the photographers Jeanloup Sieff, Robert Doisneau, Clyde Butcher and the main man Ansel Adams. He is self-taught and passionate about black and white photography, specifically film. He has worked with Leica UK, Phase One and is an Official Ilford Artisan Partner – qualified to teach the artisan process of film and darkroom photography, and was instrumental in the concept behind Ilford’s “Share a Darkroom” idea.

He is author of the acclaimed book Urban Portraits (Coffee Stop Publishing, 2017) which contains images of the people Keith has met during his travels, as well as hints and tips about street portraiture. He regularly contributes to photography magazines and during his successful thirty-year career he has worked as an advertising photographer for Blue-Chip companies, photographing members of the royal family and numerous celebrities.

He has appeared at Focus on Imaging at the Birmingham NEC and at the prestigious Photo Romania Festival where he held a Street Photography Masterclass. He is also a guest Lecturer at several universities throughout the UK.

Currently, Keith now puts his energy into passing on his passion and craft through workshops and photography experiences run from his gallery, studio and darkroom and now with the help of Dapper Dan the Darkroom Van at various locations in the UK and Europe.

“Photography is life…it gives me the ability to express my every thought and emotion, it’s my way of communicating. It gives me fulfilment and above all, photography gives me peace.”
