about me

 

Hi, thanks for looking, I hope you find what you need and like the pictures, I've really enjoyed taking them.

Here's me in action in a lovely behind the scenes film from a collaboration that I have just completed the with performance artist Jos Houben and the team at Original Editions...

I've been a professional photographer for more than 15 years, starting in the press and then as a freelancer since 2006. I have a diverse portfolio of clients ranging from some of the largest commercial and engineering organisations in the world to niche publishers, artists and theatrical companies. I'm also a contributor to the permanent collection of the National Portrait Gallery

As you have seen I'm experienced in most disciplines of photography and although i'm predominantly a people photographer I like to keep things pretty broad and I love new experiences. I'm very comfortable working to briefs and encourage close collaborations wherever possible, it sounds obvious really but, at it's most basic level, my job is simply to help make you and your stuff look good. I really enjoy meeting people and seem to put them at ease which helps a lot when, in my experience, most of us would rather go to the dentist than have our picture taken.

Here are some examples of my work on the page...

I've been lucky enough to build great relationships with my clients and as a consequence have worked with them over many years, if there is anything that I can help you with please get in touch I would be more than happy to chat through whatever you need.

Other less important things to know are that I live just outside London with my wife and 2 young children (I work everywhere of course), I enjoy bad prime time detective shows, my favourite pub is currently the Horseshoe in Glasgow (this is always open to review though) and for reasons unknown I really love bridges.

I try not to take myself too seriously so, just for giggles, here is a video of me shooting the self portrait above...

I've had a haircut since then... and have stopped pulling that particular stunt after breaking my hip doing something similar and equally silly.

Finally, in case you have made it this far, here is the live feed from my instagram account...

... and tap here for some links to the equipment and suppliers that I like to use and rely on to make my work possible.

Thanks again for looking, if there is anything I can help you with please do drop me a line or just give me bell.
