I’ve been taking photographs ever since I received my first camera as a gift aged 14, an Olympus OM 10 with a standard 50mm lens. I immediately fell in love with photography and the possibilities of exploring the world in ways I had never quite managed to achieve through drawing and painting alone. Because I’d always been interested in visual art forms, the camera offered me the opportunity to develop my own aesthetic in a way that seemed to resonate with me. I soon learned to view photography as the perfect marriage between science and art, technology and creativity, engineering and expression. I later studied for a degree in Social Anthropology and my interest in people and cultures has always informed my work. I’m fascinated in what makes people the way they are and wherever possible, I like to focus my lens on subjects that offer an insight in to people and their stories, thereby informing viewers of a world beyond their own. In 2007 I decided to turn my passion into my career and I studied photography at the London College of Communication where I filled many of the gaps in my knowledge and learned to improve my skills. I’ve never stopped learning and I enjoy sharing that learning with others through my photography workshops.
I bring my own style to commercial and editorial portraits, stories and features. I work both with agencies and directly with end-user clients, including major UK news providers, the not-for-profit sector, corporate and commercial clients. Some of the clients I’ve worked with over the years can be found here. I live in London with my wife and children although I go wherever the work takes me. I am a member of the BPPA and EPUK.
