I enjoy working with people and this reflects in my work. I find the challenge of the tight deadline or difficult requirement pushes me to achieve. I have never been one to settle for 'just good enough', I have to deliver the best I can.

My style is generally to use natural light as much as possible. I try to capture the moment and avoid the obviously posed. When you look at your photographs over the years they should be the doorway to a moment in time. That, to me, is a timeless image and that is what I strive to capture.

I cover a range of photographic disciplines and divide my time between commissioned work, freelance work, self financed projects and work for local community groups and charities.

Based in Christchurch in Dorset I have covered events over most of the South and South West of England.

I am CRB checked and have the Standard Disclosure documentation which can be viewed if required. For those interested in the equipment I use a range of Canon bodies and lenses. I am also a Canon Professional Services member.

I am a member of the Event Photography Society a trade association for professional event photographers.

I sometimes update a blog. Mainly aimed at fellow photographers it has a few tips and tricks I use that other photographers may find useful.
