My passion for photography is about people and experiences. From an early age I would capture summer holidays and school trips on a simple camera. While at Sixth Form I attended evening classes, learning the basics of traditional photography. After studying at Bournemouth & Poole College of Art & Design and The London College of Printing, I assisted a wide range of photographers, in the studio and on location – all around the world, using just about every camera and lighting kit!
My main body of work includes portraiture, beauty, fashion and still life for international brands, magazines and newspapers, as well as private commissions – always with a desire to capture the spirit of the person in front of me.
When I’m travelling, you’ll find me in the street, in a field or by the sea, photographing daybreak. This is my time. There’s something magical about capturing the light on a scene at the start of a day. Knowing that the moment in front of me is unique, adds an intimacy to the photograph that is ever lasting.
“Sophisticated equipment frees all of us from the tyranny of technique and enables us to turn to what photography is all about – creating a picture.
One is not really a photographer until preoccupation with learning has been outgrown and the camera in his hands is an extension of himself.”
