Keith has been a journalist for nearly 40 years and now also documents stories through photographs.
He took a break from newspapers in 2012 to return to study, graduating four years later from the University of the West of England in Bristol, UK, with a first class honours degree in photography.
Since university, Keith has combined freelance editing with photography commissions. He specialises in documentary photography, environmental portraiture and landscapes.
Away from work, Keith enjoys art, music and sport and has a keen interest in history and archaeology. He also likes to travel and has a special fondness for Spain and its people. He has been learning the Spanish language for several years.
Spain has been the focus for his most recent project, Tortured Fields, about the places where British volunteers fought in the Spanish Civil War. This was his final major piece of work at university, but he is continuing with the project following his graduation.
