About the author
After graduating in 1973 in Applied Chemistry he worked in a company with dichromated gelatin, unrelated to holography. In ’77, he was amazed to see a holographic pendant made using the very material he was researching. His life ‘changed for ever’. He subsequently worked on photopolymer materials for Ilford, which became the subject for an MPhil at Wolverhampton Polytechnic. Since ’91 he has been involved in ‘blue sky’ research at the Institute of Biotechnology in Cambridge, UK. Jeff is the recipient of the Royal Photographic Society’s Saxby award for 2003

He has worked for holographic companies making photoresist holograms for embossing. He is now an amateur holographer fabricating his own DCG emulsions. He has always liked reverse engineering, and enjoys taking an idea from concept to final product.
