About Me


Since getting my first SLR camera at a young age (a Pentax MZ-5N), I have always been passionate about photography. I began studying photography at secondary school, and continued right through to degree level, obtaining a BA (Hons) from Nottingham Trent University.

After graduating in 2001, I assisted several highly regarded advertising photographers in London, gaining invaluable practical and technical experience whilst honing my own eye for creative composition and lighting.

In 2003 I set up my own business and I have never looked back. I have enjoyed photographing a huge variety subjects over the years, and I have met some truly fascinating and inspiring people.

I am fortunate enough to be able to combine my career with my passions for photography and the great outdoors. I really enjoy shooting on location and my work has taken me to some great places throughout the UK, and in recent years Amsterdam, Monaco, South of France, Norway, Sardinia, The USA, and the British Virgin Islands.



Most of my work comes through design agencies across Hertfordshire, London and the South East, however I also enjoy working directly with corporate, industrial, and editorial clients right across the UK.

I bring enthusiasm, professionalism, creativity, and 12 years of experience to every shoot, reliably providing my clients with the results that they need (and hopefully a few smiles along the way).

Much of my photography is used in company brochures, websites, and marketing material, however my work has also featured in internationally published magazines, and advertising campaigns on 48 sheet billboards.

I shoot with both Hasselblad digital medium format, and Professional Nikon DSLR camera systems to deliver the very best image quality and versatility.

Recent clients include Cafe Rouge, Cofely GDF Suez, Stepford Homes, The University of Cambridge, B3 Living, Boat International Media, Connect Property Services, The Football League, Gama Aviation, The University of Hertfordshire, Mercer & Hole, JCA Group, Bright House, and Co-operative Corporate Banking.

Thanks for taking a look at my site. If you would like to discuss a project or arrange a portfolio meeting please do not hesitate to get in touch. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
