I started taking photos when I was 14 on a clunky old Russian Lubitel camera. I have no idea where the camera came from or why I decided on that as a hobby but I was instantly hooked. Today I photograph everything from a railway depot in Tunbridge Wells to a car shoot in Turkey.
I would photograph anything and everything. Living in the countryside
it was mainly nature and views but an old tumbledown house would
give me hours of material. It was photographing a village fayre that,
unknowingly, got me my first job in photography. My local newspaper
were advertising for a trainee photographer and I took along some
prints from a fete I’d gone to earlier that month. On the strength of
these shots I got the job and never looked back.
A few years later I decided to leave and become a freelance photographer.
I have been commissioned to work around the world from Japan through
Africa to the Falkland Islands but the majority of my work is done in Europe
and the South East of England. I am grateful that the majority of my clients
have come from recommendations and have grown into long-term creative
relationships. I am also very lucky that these clients span the range of sectors,
including multinationals, public bodies, charities and local businesses.
The work is also varied; from corporate portraiture, events and
conferences, to press and public relations imagery, I have covered
most aspects of the job. I undertake architectural work for property
developers, housing charities and industrial clients - from one off
finished schemes to multi year progress reports. I also work with
many companies shooting environmental and site specific case
studies. I love working with people - a product of my beginnings in
press photography – and am used to getting the best from people
who are naturally reticent in front of the camera. I am equally happy
to work with or without art directors and designers to produce
stunning creative work of which we will all be proud.
