I love images. I find them freeing. As a dyslexic who struggled with words, I find images easy, I scan for them and skip the words.
At 16 I loved a one off session in photography so much I took up an evening class. I found a badly paid weekend job at an old school camera shop and at 18 went on to Farnham Art College to complete a photography degree.
I started my studies at a revolutionary time in the photographic industry learning dark room skills at the same time as Photoshop. I then honed my skills working as a photography assistant and digital operator. I learnt my craft from the best in the business and often the relationship was mutually beneficially as I taught the old school some new techniques. I have taken inspiration from the film industry to pull into my own moving image work as a photographer by working as a clapper loader and camera assistant on films.
My photography is about honesty and interaction. It’s about capturing a story in a moment, a story that grabs hold of us, entices us, draws us in and leaves us wanting more.
I love my job, pursuing the best results when embarking on any project and can arrange to undertake assignments quickly and within budget. Here is a look at some of my work. I hope you like it.
