I am a professional photographer specialising in science photography. My interest in chemistry, as in other domains of science, lie in the use of visuals and photographic images as a supporting means of communicating science, both within the scientific community and to the general public.

Chemistry in particular, has such a wealth of visual beauty that I believe there is a lot of scope in the use of photography to increase public awarenes and understanding.
