The Training Gap


Like millions of people I have a passion for cinema. In more recent years this has involved me taking photographs and compiling and creating sets of images on various cinematic themes, ( see the galleries page ). It also has involved me in cinema journalism.
Throughout my career I have frequently had to write in various formats to suit various purposes. I have had considerable experience in writing for published educational, training, technical and instructional materials. I can research. write and produce effective copy to deadline and for a wide variety of purposes. I have had film reviews published, been a regular contributor to "What Video" magazine, a technical advisor and co-author for two books on photography - one being established as an introductory textbook.
