Rod now works in mixed media, having discovered the fine control a marriage of traditional techniques with digital technology offers at every stage of his image creation.

Most recently, Rod haslaunched a series of signed limited editions of his images giclee printed on to archival cotton-rich papers to ensure the maximum quality and longevity. Describing his latest images, Rod says "This is the first time in a career spanning over 20 years, I have been able to take full control of how my images will look – this is a very exciting project".
