I am a self-taught photographer who after many years training and working in less creative fields has finally found his calling. Although this interest began to see fruition in a commercial sense as early as 2008, doing small projects for local firms and acquaintances, it was my long planned-for (and saved-for) trip to India in 2011 that ignited a passion and desire to learn about photography and other cultures more than any other.

Since that trip I have travelled almost constantly, (only coming back to the UK once to work and save money for my next trip) buying Enfield motorbikes and living out a long held dream of exploring independently and with no constraints. I camped by the side of the road or would stay with families I had been lucky to befriend. As a result I was able to photograph incredible people within their environments. I have learnt how important it is to immerse yourself and gain the trust of those people you wish to capture and their generosity and hospitality has never failed to amaze me.

I have come back from this experience knowing that I now consider myself a photographer first and foremost. A real photography geek! I am constantly planning my next project, always analysing the light, possible compositions and subjects. It is the thing that drives me more than anything else. Read Less
