Website maintenance

a database error has removed much of the content of my website


Over the weekend a database corruption on the theme has removed most of the content and affected formatting across the whole site. Owing to my current schedule, and that I have to do all the work myself, this could take many weeks to correct. In the meantime my reel and CV are available, and my archive continues to be available to purchase via Alamy and Getty. Sorry for the problem, Robert. 16th Feb 2016.
