My History & Future
Hi, and welcome to my photography site. I turned professional in 2008 after many years of taking photographs at an amateur level and decided to believe in myself and take the plunge into the photographic industry. I started shooting with local authorities, with young people, to build their inner confidence and actually made a difference to their lives. This willingness to succeed at a high level and make people and clients happy still resonates and reflects in my manner and professionalism today.
I was due to go the university route, but actually had no time as I gained a lot of work very quickly, choosing to get an online European Photography online degree, which honed my skills and guided me through the basics of mastering light. Then experience makes you grow, so thereafter I became a wedding photographer for three years, which then taught me people management and to a degree politics!
I have always had drive to be the absolute best at what I shoot and will never stop learning. This has helped me in the past few years to shoot what I love, Commercial & Fashion photography. This has taken me across the world, shooting, giving me vast experience with any professional photographic assignment or commission assigned. A London Fashion Week regular, shooting for designers and eventually hoping to shoot in Paris and New York after a few received invites!
My experience ranges from high-end fashion photography for designer look-books, on locations in Europe and worldwide, brand shoots and launches from Bentley to Red Bull. Photographic Editor for the relaunched luxury publication VOUZ! Magazine, shooting luxury brands, travelling to many destinations including Monaco, St Tropez, Paris, Rome, Florence, Milan, etc, as well as prolifically shooting on home ground in Central London.
Also high-end model upgrades to get noticed in today's crowded marketplace and tough modeling environment with valid promotion and photographs produced for a commercial and marketing direction for real world usage. So much so now, as by requests, I now offer Image Consultancy, model mentoring and management.
I have also worked in the dance and entertainment world, working for dancers and TV celebrities such as Brendan Cole, who I collaborated with, providing his show advertising and programme imagery for four years, along with many other Strictly Come Dancing Stars. I have shot a lot of celebrities quite regularly and provide great imagery for press usage and general promotional events with minimum fuss and total professionalism.
So from humble beginnings, I am now a fully fledged, extremely experienced, internationally published... Professional Photographer,
