About me

I am a freelance photographer based in Winchester England. I have focussed mainly on the travel sector producing photography for travel publishers like Berlitz and Insight Guides. I have a passion for portraiture and have been commissioned to produce location and studio portraits for various clients including design companies, actors, Fashion PR companies, model agencies and festival organisers. I also run annual, overseas Photo Workshops for the luxury tour operator KUONI. I was a brand ambassador for the camera company Olympus for 5 years and I won the British Travel Press Photographer of the Year award in 2013. I am a contributor to the invite only premium divisions of Shutterstock (Offset) and Picfair. I have had two solo exhibitions and been published in numerous books and magazines.
