With more than ten years photographic experience, including working for international fashion brands I bring all the skills I have learnt into my freelance and creative work.
I have a mild obsession with imagery and I am always composing pictures in my head or sensing a moment.
From an early age I painted and drew and through out my formative years created many images. My passion for photography grew as I picked up a film SLR and didn’t put it down for a long time. Studying photography at degree level gave me the time and space to form a really strong bond with the medium and an inquisitive, instinctive eye. This instinctive nature allows me to sense moments and emotions and capture them with out interference.
Currently I am a full time fashion photographer capturing the products in an intense professional photographic studio for international mega brand Superdry.

I grew up in a cotswold village in the country side and cut my teeth painting the fields and nature around our family home.Early 2000's I began a photography course at a local night school.
In 2003 I was offered a place at the University of Gloucestershire to study Art, towards the end of this course I specialised in photography and was offered a place on the Editorial and Advertising BA (Hons) Degree course.
