From the moment I picked up my great uncle Athol’s Olympus OM-1 at the age of 14, I knew that photography was in my blood.
Fourteen years on and I have gained a First Class Photography degree with Honours from Manchester Metropolitan University. I am now a professional photographer specialising in commercial and portrait photography and I teach photography to both beginners and advanced students.
My background is in fine art photography. I see a photograph as a piece of art, demanding as much attention as a fine painting. One of my great skills is the ability to see creatively. By bringing this creativity to my commercial projects, I am able to produce unique and powerful images that stand out from the crowd. I take a great deal of pride over my work and, being a perfectionist, I work very hard to ensure that I excel in all my endeavours. I bring this level of care and commitment to all my clients.
I live and work in Leeds, Yorkshire. I spend my spare time working on personal photography projects. I prefer to work in medium format film for my personal work, and I am often in my dark room late into the evening, developing and creating images. My passion is photography, and it tends to take over most aspects of my life one way or another, just as it did as a teenager, much to my delight.
