I am a semi-retired building surveyor, photographer, art student, sailor and occasional saxophonist but not necessarily in that order...

When working, I was Chas Bedford MSc FRICS, a freelance chartered building surveyor. I am now in a phased retirement; I ceased taking new instructions in March 2018 and am working existing files to a conclusion.

A building surveyor can be thought of as a kind of 'building doctor' (certainly the way I did it). What we do concerns buildings, how they are put together, how they work, why they sometimes don't, and what to do about it.

Retirement gives me more time for photgraphy, as Chas Bedford LRPS CPAGB, and to pursue studies for a BA Photography with the OCA
