Julian has been involved with professional photography for the last 26 years, during which time it has become his abiding passion. Julian has always been a keen darkroom worker and, have spent a large part of his career producing prints of one sort or another.

Julian says:

"A few years producing personal work in monochrome on factory made paper left me disillusioned and frustrated with my results and I started looking around for a process that would give me more choice over colours and textures. I have been printing my personal work, almost exclusively, in Gum Bichromate and am just starting to achieve my visions."
