about me

I first developed my passion for photography while traveling Australia with an old Pentax film camera, snapping everything I could focus my lens on. I went on to study Zoology at the University of Liverpool, developing my love of the natural world. After completing my science education, my first official photographic learning came from the University of Nottingham with an MSc in Biological Photography & Film. Here, I developed my technical understanding of photography as well as documentary film making. I still love designing and creating good images, all the way from the initial idea to producing the final content. Outstanding presentation adds so much value to photography, so I love being part of the whole creative process all the way to the end.

Since then I have refined my photographic style and knowledge with over 15 years of professional experience. My first job within the industry was with Prosport, a small photographic sports agency covering professional football & rugby leagues for the UK national newspapers. I soon moved to Backpage Images & then Shutterstock, covering the largest sporting events around the globe such as European Cup finals, World Cups & Wimbledon Championships.

Having moved away from daily editorial agency work, today I concentrate on creative outdoor lifestyle & portraits, commercial sport, as well as providing images & video content to a range of businesses, charities & pr agencies.
