About me

I previously spent eight years as a Royal Marines Commando, where I was first taught how to use a camera. This intense and extensive experience informs my approach and I like to think my work has an edgy feel shared with the likes of Japanese photographers such as Daido Moriyama and Yuichi Hibi. I favour monochrome in many of my personal projects, but also understand the importance of colour, depending on the brief. I usually avoid trendy post-production methods such as filters (that ultra-vivid look), preferring low-contrast colours with a little grit, reminiscent of film. Of course, for commissioned work, the client's needs will always take the front seat. I share my time between street photography and events, with the latter providing most of my income at present. As post-production plays a large part in my work, I am keen to use the associated skills in other ways and am open to opportunities to grow in this sense.
