I create powerful and award-winning portraits for advertising and design agencies all over the UK and worldwide. I didn't always do this. I taught English in Japan and holidayed in war zones before landing a proper job in commercial banking. I spent most of my time planning my resignation and unleashing plenty of frustration in kickboxing tournaments. Then I took the plunge and started shooting people instead.
10 short years later and it all seems to have gone pretty well. My work is represented by a gallery alongside some of the industry's leading lights and i've been shortlisted for the AOP awards over 20 times. I've shot outdoor campaigns for the likes of Asda, Adidas, Network Rail and Liverpool FC and been privileged to have my work featured in Campaign and Creative Review.
I pride myself on being easy to work with and calm under pressure. And i'd like to think my levels of banter are sufficient to keep energy high on my shoots. Most of my assistants would disagree.
I create portraits with a distinct look and feel, full of energy and character. All of my images tell a unique story, crafted with cinematic light and meticulous attention to detail. It's my way of bringing ideas to life so my clients stand out with innovative photography they're proud to own.
