‘You don’t take a photo, you make it’ – Ansel Adams. I like to develop Images which capture the spirit of places and things. Recreating not only what I saw but also how I felt. I encourage my memory to enhance those experiences further, through subsequent development and modification, whilst preserving the basic integrity of the subject.

I have been involved in art and design for over 35 years working mainly in design/advertising and latterly in art and photographic education. Initially I trained as an illustrator/graphic designer and my photographic skills are based around balancing perceived compositional elements with appropriate technical skills.

I accept a wide range of photographic briefs which include highly conceptual imagery,weddings and events and specialized applications such as large stitched 360 degree panoramas and macro photography. My broad based arts background allows me to consider and plan for the wider design requirements that many clients need in their photographic or graphic briefs.

On this site I am showcasing mainly my own personal photographs taken whilst traveling in Spain, Florida and across the UK. I hope that they capture a place and a moment in a way that others can share and enjoy here. I welcome any feedback in the comments section or drop me an email…it would be nice to know more about the good people who bother to look at my work!

I have some commercial images covering weddings & events, stock, print, web, products and architecture available here:

If you need specific commissions please take a look.
