About me

First thoughts on new copy… another unedited look inside my head…

I’m yet to come across a commission that I’m not interested in. I love my job.

I trained at art school, and then spent years assisting some of the UKs biggest photographers. As well as working as a commercial photographer I enjoy working on my own personal art projects and three years ago I set up a website: Dyslexic Photographer, so whilst, encouraging others to pursue photography, I had a portal where I didn’t have to monitor my spelling.

I have a little girl who I try and take care of as much as possible and I consider myself to be a freelance photographer and freelance dad. It’s an interesting juggling act that my wife and I are getting the hang of. Just.

I am forever expanding my client base, and my work includes: editorial, creating library images for companies, theatre posters, interiors, all kinds of portraits, annual reports, project based artwork and advertising campaigns.

I thrive on collaboration, exchanging ideas and pushing creative boundaries. I do everything possible to understand my clients’ needs and the context of the project at hand, and then I tailor a shoot to fulfil the needs of the project, whilst remaining within budget and meeting deadlines. With over 15 years experience working on professional photoshoots, I bring huge skill as a photographer and lighting designer and have connections to industry professional including; make-up artists, stylists, assistants, designers, re-touchers and editors. I also work with video, and bring in any team members needed, to create video content.
