My Music Videos

[Updated 28 May 2024] I have always enjoyed taking photographs and over the years this naturally evolved into shooting videos. With the advent of YouTube I started adding a musical track and began publishing my work. The following is a catalogue of my Music Video productions. In compiling this I was amazed to see I have made 83 since 2013. To see all my videos please visit my YouTube channel.
