I love all the experiences life throws at me (& photographing it!)

I’m a reportage style photographer. There’s little that doesn’t interest me so I enjoy photographing all sorts of different subjects. Capturing the wider picture and the details that makes a story. Based in Brighton I’m close to London with all its interests & travel connections. Yet with all the benefits of this eclectic city, the countryside and sea there’s no shortage of subjects to photograph.

I particularly enjoy arts & crafts, food & producers, and travel & adventure. I prefer to use ambient light primarily, but many situations require some lighting so I make use as required, kept as natural as possible. I’ve been lucky enough to win a couple of awards, details of which you can see below.

And when I’m not working, you could well find me challenging (or defending) a World Championship title or two, planning my next adventure, or more likely than not, just walking the dog.

'FOOD FOR SALE' - WINNER

Awesome to be awarded the winner of the ‘Food For Sale’ category in the Pink Lady Food Photographer of the Year competition in Spring 2014. I took the shot at an incredible street market in Chile while on a commission for the lovely ‘Food and Travel’ magazine. I was very grateful that the subject didn’t mind my taking his portrait. His son’s were busy giggling out of the frame, and it caused quite a stir with stall holders and shoppers alike, but he held his composure just long enough for this shot. Happy days!

A BRIT DIFFERENT - WINNER

Members of the public were asked to nominate their favourite book, which in some way celebrates the joys of the outdoor. Titles ranged from fact and fiction to prose and poetry, across a wide variety of themes, from gardening & wildlife to extreme sports & travel. Hundreds of votes were received via the National Trust’s website over the course of a month. They initially set out to find the best six books, but nominations were received for such a variety that eight were chosen as winners, including mine!
