My whole working life has been spent photographing the great and the good (and the not so good..) , for a raft of international clients. No two days are ever the same, whether hanging from a studio ceiling, or out of an aeroplane. Recent highlights included the chance to photograph the Prince Andrew/Newsnight interview for the BBC at Buckingham Palace- a remarkable day that led to the images being used across the globe.

A life spent photographing the great and the good (and the occasional not so good..).
