I`m is a photographer based in London.
Born in the North of England, I was given my grandfathers Balda rangefinder and a few rolls of film at fifteen.
Things progressed swiftly from there. 
I studied photography for four years at Newcastle Art College and Bournemouth College of Art & Design,
during which time I learnt a lot about photography and very little about business.
That would come later.


After graduation I spent a year traveling North America mixing work and pictures.
A Greyhound bus as a bed makes for long days and short nights.


Upon returning to the UK, I assisted some of the leading editorial and advertising photographers before taking on commissions of my own.
This led me to work with a large variety of clients from newspapers and magazines to design companies and advertising agencies.
I also learnt that it`s not the end of the world if the picture doesn`t work - unless you`re being paid - in which case it is the end of the world.  
Touch wood, that has yet to happen.


A natural approach, working primarily with daylight and in a variety of situations has enabled me to build up a body of work across many genres.
These reflect my love of travel and the outdoors as well as looking for a picture just outside the front door.
My work has been recognized by the Taylor Wessing Photographic Portrait Prize, International Photography Awards and
The Landscape Photographer of the Year competition.


I lives in Hackney, East London with my partner, two belligerent teenagers and Zero, The Cat.
