Based in York, I am a self-taught, award-winning photographer. A background in architecture and graphic design has given me a keen eye for detail and composition. The desire to find the shot in the most mundane or ordinary locations drives my passion.
My interest in photography started from a very early age. During my employment as a graphic designer I used a dark room to develop prints for use in exhibitions. Frustrated by the lengthy time it took to develop the prints, I quickly fell out of love with rolls of film! The ability to quickly see results in digital photography fast-tracked my trial-and-error approach to self learning.
Primarily a landscape photographer, I have a keen interest in exploring other aspects of photography. More recently, product photography has played a key role in my learning and understanding of light.
I have become regarded as one of the UK’s most pioneering and inspirational fine art drone photographers. This has been reinforced by receiving Highly Commended and Commended awards in the Landscape Photographer of the Year competition 2016 and 2017, and a finalist in the Outdoor Photographer of the Year competition 2016 and 17. My work has also featured in publications such as The Sunday Times Magazine, Outdoor Photography, Photography Week, Amateur Photographer Magazine and PhotoPlus magazine and I have been invited as an expert judge with Photocrowd.com, a web based photography competition and image hosting site.
I have recently undertaken commissioned work on behalf of The New and Used Boat Co., Partners PR, S Harrison Developments Ltd, John Smith Architects, Smith Dimes Architectural Illustration and, alongside my current employment with CSP Architects.
