About Mike Crawley

I'm Mike Crawley FRPS, a fine art photographer specialising in creative sensual imagery. Currently based in Hertfordshire and with over 40 years experience in conventional and digital photography.
.............................................................................

BACKGROUND : I've had a long association with and a passion for photography for as long as I can remember. From processing films and printing prints in the bathroom of my student flat in Manchester to a life long career in the photographic industry with Kodak Ltd in Harrow. It was here that my passion grew and blossomed into an obsession, and my expertise as a photographer and printer was honed. Now retired from Kodak Ltd it was a natural progression to continue as a freelance photographer.

.............................................................................

BENCHMARK ACHIEVEMENTS : My first major photographic achievement was completing all the modules in the City & Guilds 9231 Photography course in 1988. Since then I have gained a Licentiateship (LRPS) and a Fellowship of the Royal Photographic Society (FRPS), been the President of the Kodak Photographic Society in Harrow, and been active in local, National and International salons, winning several medals and commendations. In more recent times I've had over 2000 stock images published in 47 countries across the world in books, magazines, newspapers and travel guides, written a book and had my art work published in several other books and magazines. Currently my main interest is in self publishing my work and have, so far, self published 46 photography books.
