My desire for photography led me to study design in Swindon
which culminated in attending a photography course at the
Kent Institute of Art and Design. After qualifying, I accepted
an offer to see more of the world by becoming a photographer
on a cruise ship. Having explored the pyramids, crossed the
Panama Canal, gazed at glaciers in Alaska, and strutted the
streets of New York.
I returned to England to work with a professional photographer
called Greame Montgomery, specialising in fashion still life
photography based in Clerkenwell. Four years later I branched
out to start my independent photographic career gaining my
first commission for German Architectural Digest
magazine which required interior photographs of the Mulberry
Hotel in Somerset. Although my initial passion was portraiture,
I was drawn towards Interiors and lifestyle, leading to
commissions with such clients as German Vogue, Elle,
Elle Deco, Living Etc, Marie Claire, The Guardian,
The Sunday Times, Harpers & Queen, Conde Nast
Traveller and the publishers Conran Octopus and
John Brown Publishing.
My focus has recently returned to portriature, and I have
recently enjoyed photographing such personalities as
Frank Williams and David Coultard.
