When I started taking photographs I didn't know where it would lead. I didn't know what I would enjoy shooting. I didn't know what my style would be.

Over time I came to realise that taking pictures of people was my number one photographic passion. There is more to portrait photography than understanding aperture, shutter speed and lighting. I believe that to be any good at portrait photography you have to be good with people. I have fun on my shoots, I get to know people; find out what they like or what they're up to after we finish shooting, what they want to be, where they want to go. I think that that level of connection comes across in my shots.

I was asked in an interview once why I enjoyed portrait photography so much. I thought about it for a while and then answered.

"I like taking photographs of beautiful things and I think people are the most beautiful things there are."

That pretty much sums it up.

Sometimes when I'm lugging around a couple of grands worth of heavy equipment up a mountain in scorching heat and extremely uncomfortable humidity I question whether travel photography is worth it but when I pop my SD card in my computer and start to flick through my images I re-remember that the payoff is worth the effort.

Back in 2010 I quit my job and went off on an adventure around Asia and Australia. Since then if I don't have a trip planned and booked in my diary I get grouchy. I love going around the world with my camera on my shoulder capturing all of the weird, wild and beautiful sights there are to see. 

There's something special about working in the field. You can't control the weather, you can't control the light, you can't control the kid who's jumping into frame every time you try to take a shot of a street scene. It's that unpredictability that draws me to it and makes that rare occasion when you grab a great shot that little bit more special.

Commercial Photography. The business bit. The work you have to take on so you can earn enough money to take all of the holidays to shoot shots of beautiful landscapes.

Luckily for me I don't see my commercial work like that. I love working to create imagery which is then used as a piece of an overall great design. 

Whether you have a complicated brief that covers every single tiny bit of detail or your simply have a shell of a vision that needs fleshing out I want to get involved with bringing it to life. 

Over the past few years I've shot for small business, big business, charities, magazines, runway shows and events and have been published in the UK and internationally. If you need some imagery and don't want to go down the cheesy man sat gurning at a laptop wearing a tie stock photography route then get in touch.
