Hello there.

I'm a London based photographer & retoucher specialising in people and portraiture for the advertising and design world.

I've always been a people person, so it's no surprise what's where my photography has taken me - and it's always a joy to explore and connect with others - it's the heart of the job.

On set, I l keep it relaxed, fun, collaborative and light hearted, taking time to get to know my subjects - It's this that helps me get to the moments of genuine spontaneity.

It's all in the bits between the shots where I find the gold. The off-guard seconds, the candid reaction to something I say, or shots where I'm telling my sitter I'm just taking meter readings. The guard comes down and the real person comes through.

I do all of my own post production too, so you can be assured that the clarity of the idea will be carried through from start to finish.

I'm also really experienced in shooting in and around TV  and film sets,  capturing campaign images with a small footprint for maximum impact. You'd be amazed what we could do together on a joint TV / stills project. Ask me for details.

As an antidote to all of that beautiful lit work, I've been attracted to liminal spaces and benign, detached  landscapes for as long as I can remember. You can see some of this in my Project Grim work.

From the slate grey light of Chernobyl, to light industrial units and the murky side of Las Vegas, I love to shoot bleak reportage images of places we usually pass though unnoticed.

When I'm not shooting I'm a huge live sports fan, a boxing fanatic and an enthusiastic dog walker. 

I also like Star Wars and video gaming a bit too much for a man my age.

If you've got a project you'd like to talk over, give me a shout or drop me a line - I'm always around for a chat and a cuppa.
