“We are making photographs to understand what our lives mean to us.” — Ralph Hattersley

Hello and thanks for taking the time to look at my work. I hope you can see that I love what I do - which is all about the unique combination of the craft and the people. People like you who appreciate the value of great photography.

Since childhood I enjoyed drawing. My favourite subject at school was art and back then my medium of choice Naval & Ship Engineering. I studied History of Art at degree level and now when people describe my work as 'artistic' I couldn't be happier.

I went to college while working, and finally beat my college. I always worked in creative industries - Book Publishing, Magazine, Production House and brand design. Learning photography self-taught in my precious down time - but loving every minute of it.

I was asked to shoot a wedding and finally I listened to those close to me and decided to set up my business. There has never been any doubt about my speciality, my photographic passion - and that is photographing people. And I'm convinced you can only do this successfully if you enjoy making connections and building relationships. It matters to me. I want to give you something individual and personal by taking the time to know you a little. I often get asked now what I most enjoy taking pictures of and I honestly can't restrict it to just one genre.

Shooting Portrait & Other Images

Portrait is my passion and has been for many years, now i embrace all of the aspects of photography that I have always captured. After much deliberation I am now opening up to all genres of photography that I like to shoot and that includes landscapes which can often feel like the guys who like to fish out in the wilds. Its a break from the norm and allows some free thinking time whilst enjoying the natural world which i do and share with my friends

Realising that it was about time to show all aspects of what I capture at this point, this website is the new way for me to feel comfortable within the fashion and lifestyle mix.. I was always told not to show any other styles or interests in other genres of photography or least not show it! and to have a main focus, however this has taken its toll over the years and in a way I felt trapped. It is now a release of photographic interests and ideas and these galleries whilst growing will preview some deeper feelings and subject matter that makes me feel good about photography and release some of my Analogue and Historical training in photography processes.

I want to be. One who wants to give you something a little bit different, more considered, more unique if you will. So if that's what you are after then get in touch and let's work together to create something special.

I am now exploring video in a deeper and creative way and would like to see the creativity seen in my still work flowing though the video and editing process as Director of Photography for some clients.
