I live and breathe photography and I do everything humanly possible to achieve the best images on any assignment.

On magazine feature assignments there’s always an editors script to shoot to, but we all know the problems always mount up. The weather is never perfect, the talent may be late, the location was not as perceived and so on.

Whatever the obstacles may be, my job is to create the story; beginning, middle and end, whether it’s still life, detail shots, establishing shots, portraits, and more.

Overcoming the problems that invariably arise is as rewarding as creating the visual story and fulfilling the assignment.

It’s what I do!


I travel with professional Nikon flagship cameras, pro Nikon lenses and an Elinchrom pro-travel strobe equipment. My studio is fully equipped for all types of work.

I’m a very travelled photographer and have shot many varied feature assignments throughout Britain, Europe and further afield. Anywhere I’m sent in fact! My studios are on the doorstep of the panoramic Lincolnshire coast which offers great inspiration. I’m never shy of a challenging brief and fully understand the vital role that is played by the photographic image and how it has to work with a clients; branding and identity, or a magazine or news standpoint.


I’m also a lover of all things food and drink. Everything within the food chain is a food & drink image through my viewfinder. Be it someone having a lunch break, aid agencies helping migrants, hunting for wild food, cream teas, burger vans, farming, foraging, brewing, fishing, allotments...

...they all embrace so many varied lifestyles !
