I grew up in the countryside near Newark, Nottinghamshire and it was my grandfather, a keen photographer, who introduced me to photography. In 1993, armed with my trusty Olympus I moved to London to study, and, after a colourful journey, I gained a BA in Photography and later a Masters with Distinction in Photography from Westminster University.
After my studies I worked for agencies in London and Portugal and went freelance in 2003. I’ve worked alongside agencies and directly with clients, including Valentino, Vogue, Boots, Intel, Oracle and Terrence Higgins Trust.
Ten years ago I started shooting instruments and have enjoyed developing my expertise in this area since. I love that each instrument has its own unique tale to tell - be it the wood it's crafted from, the maker who lovingly made it or the hands it's been played by. Combining these stories with my skills allows me to not only be creative, but to record a bit of history at the same time.
Likes: Hammocks, auctions, visiting cave paintings.
Dislikes: Elbows on the bus, train, etc, not speaking the language.
