About

Photography has been a passion of mine since an early age, growing up in the picturesque city of Oxford where taking beautiful photographs is easy. When I first started I’d spend hours in dark rooms printing black and white photographs. I used to love seeing the image appear in front of my eyes as the paper swirled on top. A little bit of magic that is lost to most of us nowadays.

Photography progressed as did my work and I embraced the digital revolution. Now 25 years on I enjoy taking photographs as much as ever. I enjoy the human connection of portraiture where I connect with my subjects in order to find the authentic person within. 

 

I spend many days each year travelling the UK photographing cities, towns and picturesque landscapes which is a real passion of mine. I feel fortunate that I have the freedom to go where I feel like going when the sun is shining. 

I would say my style is creative, artistic and almost traditional in some aspects. A favourite photographer of mine is Henri Cartier-Bresson and my early work was inspired through studying him at college.

I have vast experience in commercial photography, whether that is head shots for a Linkedin profile or images for a leaflet campaign or website; and I have recently developed a love of cooking and photographing my dishes and ingredients which now forms part of my portfolio of images.

Finally, if you like reading then do check out these novels. History is a passion of mine and through time travel I was able to take my readers on a fast paced adventure through Oxford’s famous history.
