After retirement in 2000 he experimented with digital photography and Photoshop which enabled him to experiment with the composition ol pictorial landscapes and urbanscapes.  He added his artistic vision and photographic experience to create expressionist style  images.  He exhibited jointly with his two sons at the Auberge d `Italie, Valletta in 2011
