My own career path was in documentary and I sense that many of us would admit that on many levels the documentary experience was of immense value for later careers shooting fiction. Personally, I learned over time to be confident with a camera, both in it’s handling and in being unafraid of taking risks. Working with available light and noticing it more whether natural or artificial, white or of a colour, subtracting it as well as supplementing it. It provided the opportunity to take on board aspects of human behaviour, body language, rhythms of speech and movement and posture, all the stuff of real lives and conditions that I hoped would fuel an understanding when engaged to reproduce it for Cinema. Being a member of a Society that celebrates Cinema and that upholds and champions creative endeavour is very important and so fundamental to an age where craft values are often threatened. Surely, such a danger is represented best by the notion that sharper and sharper images are a panacea for quality Cinema.


I hope you don’t mind my supplying a new photograph to replace the present one. I did find the envelope labelled replacement passport photos but thought better of sending it as a combination of flat lighting and obeying the instruction that smiling is absolutely forbidden caused me to think better of it.
