I am a British born photographer with more than 15 years of experience. I have been fortunate enough to be able to follow my passion as a photographer and director. Initially in London where I had the opportunity of working with the acclaimed advertising photographer Andreas Heumann. Then as a self employed photographer and filmmaker working for in locations around the world for clients in film, advertising, design and publishing. Currently I work out of Berlin and London. Having been drawn to the German capital in 2001 by its vibrant, exciting and energising creative atmosphere.
Photography and film have always played an important role in my life. From my early experiments with Kodak Disc cameras through to utilising the latests Digital professional cameras the technical aspect of photography has always fascinated me. Through the study of film & photography, graduating with a First Class Hons degree in Photography from the Plymouth College of Art and design, I have turned a technical fascination into a means of finding beauty in a single frame whether its the composition, the subject or the play of the light I enjoy the act of beautification, or more simply taking beautiful pictures!
My work encompasses several fields of photography. From portraits, found compositions to filmic story telling. These themes are bound together by my approach, style and post-production treatment that creates a unique look and feel.
I hope you enjoy my work.
