About

Born and raised in London, photography was almost all I ever wanted to do.

At the age of 16 the revelation that our family home was once owned by founder members of Magnum confirmed my career path. 

Several decades later I'm lucky enough to be making a living taking pictures and its still all I ever want to do.

I'm fascinated by people and as a self confessed voyeur thrive when capturing the everyday moments of life that most take for granted. 

Specialising in lifestyle, reportage and portraiture I create colourful optimistic photographs for ad agencies, design teams and clients directly.

Recent clients include

BP - Marie Curie - SSE - Crisis - Comic Relief - Monarch - Lloyds - ITV - Marks & Spencer - BMW - Drapers - Girl Guiding - Safran
