Wayne has been creating analogue images since 1975 and digital images since the 1990s. After the RCA, he worked initially as a multimedia consultant specialising in Photoshop, animation and 3D CAD.

He made front page news in August 2004 when as a tourist in Boscastle, Cornwall, shot the iconic video of the flood waters sweeping cars down the centre of the village, used on the BBC news and numerous TV programmes since using a simple Canon Ixus digital point and shoot.
Wayne joined Brighton & Hove Camera Club in 2004 and is a competition judge in the Surrey Photographic Association and has been a lecturer at clubs and societies in the south of England on a variety of topics about photographic technology and techniques.
