Bio:
Career: Professional Freelance Photographer.

Enjoyment: Indescribable.

I've been taking photographs seriously for close to six years now, and have turned a passion into a viable career, having made the transition into full-time professional work within the past 12 months. I currently work mostly as a wedding/event photographer, whilst in my spare time I work on personal landscape projects, and I've a special affinity for Scandinavian settings. Three years ago I left part of my soul during a solo photographic trip in Iceland - I've been going back ever since trying to find it, but just seem to lose more every time...

I shoot both Digital and Medium-Format Film, so benefit from the reliability and consistency of one system, and the required patience and education, as well as detail, of the other.

I do not believe that a computer should make up for the failings of the photographer - what you see here is what my camera sees - it is not the result of five minutes shooting and five hours post-processing. I believe that a photographer has a fundamental loyalty to portray the truth of the world, and any exceptions to that truth must clearly be described as such.

My dreams and my work are the same thing, and in that I count myself blessed. I strive to be as creative and artistic in every sense with my photography, and have never been one to half-fudge a job or settle for almost-good-enough. If that appeals to you, drop me an email. I don't charge the earth and I will reply!

Cheers for looking, hope you enjoy the selection that's here...

Light and Iceland - 2007

One month spent trekking and travelling around South and East Iceland - some familiar places, some new places, but all with a fresh approach and dynamic attitude. This time around, it was all about the photographs and all about attaching a bold, personal style to them.

Cambridge: Through the eyes of a student...

Cambridge: Through the eyes of a student...

Cambridge - both as a City and University - has some incredible architecture. From small details on hidden away stonework, to climbing chapels and innumerable towers, it's a beautiful place to live. These photographs represent a selection of the many I've taken across my three years studying here. The most impressive examples probably arise from my final year, when I began to consider the idea of taking this on as a profession.

An Icelandic Dream 2006

Something of an eye-opener...

Definitely the three most memorable weeks of my life to date, when I discovered what it is that I truly want from life.

The Human Touch

The Human Touch

These images revolve around humanity, both in itself and also in its effect on the world in which we live. What we ourselves are, and what we manage to bring (or detract...) within the world around us, is shown here. Indeed in this day and age it becomes increasingly difficult to find true nature, untouched by the human. Therefore, not wanting to ignore the obvious, here are the best of my takes on humanity...
