“For all the dreamers young and old. Dream big. Keep going. With hard work, anything is possible”
As a photographer I have a real passion for what I do. I love what I do, and I have a real desire to ‘make a difference’. I believe in going above and beyond my clients expectations. I believe in optimum quality and meticulous attention to detail.
"A picture paints a thousand words”.
This is a renowned quote which I truly believe to be true, non more so than in marketing and PR photography. A professional photographer is often described as someone who takes pretty pictures, but to me marketing photography is more than that. It is often difficult for a company to fully appreciate that, but to me marketing photographs should say a lot more than simply be pretty pictures. They should ‘tell a story’ to ‘evoke emotion’ to enable a person ‘to imagine’.
After having a successful 8 year career in IT, I went back to college to re-train in photography, starting a successful photography business in 2004.
The knowledge and skill I have gained over the years ensures that any photoshoot goes smoothly and is stress free.
I have had the pleasure of photographing many celebrities and although I rarely get star struck I do appreciate the opportunity and doors that have been opened by being a professional photographer who is meticulous in my photographic approach.
Highlights of my photographic career include photographing on stage live with Deacon Blue, photographing Paloma Faith for a private party, photographing the Chinese Cricket Team meeting the English Cricket Team the day before the Ashes series, being granted a press pass to photograph on the track at the Goodwood Festival of Speed and Revival Festival and in particular capturing Sterling Moss, having a media pass to photograph the Brooklands Double Twelve motorsport event, and working on the restoration of some photographs for an exhibition for Roddy Scott’s work for the Roddy Scott Foundation.
Roddy Scott was a freelance photojournalist who worked photographing conflicts with little media coverage working in some of the World’s most dangerous locations such as Sierra Leonne, Yemen, Iraq, Afghanistan and Ethiopia. He was killed during a conflict between Russian forces and a group of Chechen Rebel fighters. It was an honour to be asked to restore some of the photographs he captured and create some photographic prints to be used for an exhibition of his work.
BEING A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER IS TO WORK IN A VERY COMPETITIVE INDUSTRY.
There are lots of photographers and any one of them would quite happily step into my shoes for the work I do with some of the clients I have. I do however realise the importance of keeping clients happy and going over and above what is expected of a professional photographer. I do everything I can to not only meet a clients expectations but to exceed them.
With experience in all aspects of event, interior and architectural photography, motorsport photography, educational marketing, and general corporate PR and marketing photography I have the skills and experience to capture what a company or individual wants in a creative and artistic way, in a technically correct way, using the highest quality photographic cameras, lenses and lighting equipment to produce natural, creative images. Everything I do is done with a passion, care and skill to ensure the little details are taken into consideration to not only capture a good image, but a great image.
