I am an award winning freelance photographer based in the North West of England. I specialise in shooting editorial, features, portraits, PR and sport. Clients who use my services include major wire agencies Associated Press, AFP, Getty Images, Press Association as well as national newspapers The Times, The Sunday Times, Mail on Sunday and UK Metro. Other clients include Chevrolet, Freud Communications, McCann PR, Saatchi & Saatchi, The FA and UK Athletics. With twenty years experience in the industry many of my clients have been long term users of my services, testament to the conscientious and reliable work ethic I adhere to.
My passion for photography started when I bought a compact camera in my teens to go to motorcycle racing events to try and emulate what I saw in the motorcycle magazines at the time. This led to me enrolling on a pro photography course at my local college then to my first taste of working in the industry as a black and white printer. Despite enjoying my time in the darkroom, I really wanted to chase my dream of earning a living behind the camera as a photographer. Today I am just as passionate and motivated as ever to getting the shot, be it at a football or rugby game or a portrait for a feature in a newspaper. This passion can be seen in the galleries on this website.
