I started my love of photography at the age of seven
Inspired and influenced by some of the great photographers past and present, I aim to describe unfolding scenes in the way in which I have experienced them, both emotionally and physically.
I am at my happiest when I am out in the open air or travelling, both near and far. My private work consists primarily, but not exclusively of landscapes and documentary - focusing on light, form, detail and texture to create dramatic and evocative images that invite the viewer to become immersed in the stories and scenes unfolding before them. I am particularly interested in creating narratives through a series of images and through book-works.
My previous works include ‘Waterfront’ - a photographic exhibition and bookwork concerned with our public/private space, ‘Rush Hour’ - a project focusing on those ‘lost’ hours sat in traffic whilst attempting to return home at the end of each day, and ‘The Farrier’ - a documentary project, following a Farrier working in the racing stables and livery yards surrounding Lambourn, Berkshire
I started my love for photography at the age of seven, when, using my borrowed Grandpa's old 120 film camera, I tried for a Cub Scout Photography Badge - I failed! But, I did win the local photography competition with a sunset taken on holiday. Since then I've not looked back.
Thankfully I have done a bit better since those first days with a camera and I proudly graduated with a 1st Class Honours Degree in Fine Art Photography, from the University of Derby's School of Art and Design in 1996. Since then I have had work published in books, journals and magazines.
Professionally I specialise in commercial photography, mainly focused on Architecture and Interiors. My interiors and architectural photographs have been published in many titles and books.
about my work
Inspired and influenced by some of the great photographers past and present, I aim to describe unfolding scenes in the way in which I have experienced them, both emotionally and physically. My work often starts out this way and over time is informed by, and morphs into a larger body of work driven by a central theme or concept
