I received a Minolta SLR camera as a birthday gift from my parents at the age of 10. From that point on, photography became a formative part of my life.
Learning the magical technique of film processing and printing was very rewarding. The benefit of growing up with film in your camera, rather than a memory card, is that it teaches the photographer to be disciplined with exposure. I soon learned that trying to print from an over or under-exposed negative was a compromise.
My career as a photographer has taken me on a journey from my first job at a local newspaper, The Richmond and Twickenham Times to Fleet Street and shoots for magazines such as LivingEtc and Homes & Gardens.
Nowadays I enjoy shooting interesting places and unusual spaces, stylish interiors and property related work. I am drawn to using the architectural form of my subject to dictate the composition.
My client list includes interiors magazines, architects, interior designers, TV production companies and manufacturers.
Since 2016 I have held a CAA permit operate a drone commercially and have recently been shooting drone footage for a TV production company at locations across the UK.
