About me
I'm an art director/photographer with over 25 years experience above and below-the-line working in London and abroad (Middle East and Poland). I've worked in all media, from print ads, posters and direct mail, to radio, online and TV commercials and have won many awards for the campaigns I helped create. As a creative, I've been fortunate to have collaborated with, and learned from, some inspirational photographers. Encouraged by those photographers, I began making documentary projects and I now divide my time between photographing these projects and my advertising creative work.
Projects
  • End Of The Road
    End Of The RoadI had started going for late-night walks during lockdown and spotted many of these classic cars and campervans parked under the eerie glare of streetlights.

Initially, I stuck quite close to home, but over time I increased the distance I covered on my meandering strolls around north London. The solitude I found wandering the streets was an almost meditative experience of simply observing as I walke
  • Shrouded In Mystery
    Shrouded In MysteryLondon is a dream location for car enthusiasts. By just wandering around, you can stumble upon a wide variety of different makes and models from older classic vehicles to supercars. After dark, when the streets are deserted, is a good time to spot these cars parked and resting. Some are tucked away in shadowy places, while others revel in the glare of streetlights. But the vehicles which most intrigue me are the secretive ones, covered up, and shrouded in mystery.
