He was director of photography on hundreds of early music videos for artists including Pail McCartney, Kate Bush, David Bowie and Elton John and has worked extensively in television including on MTV when the music channel came to Europe. He is currently CEO of the EPI-centre an electronic photo imaging company which he founded in 1993.
