I am a multi-disciplined photographer specialising in commercial photography, weddings and portraits.
Based in Oakham, Rutland (pretty much in the middle of the country!) means I can easily travel anywhere in the UK. And I do. Some of my commissions are as local as Rutland, Stamford, Peterborough and Leicester but many are in London, the north and the south – and it’s part of the fun! I love the diversity of my commissions, the creative challenges, meeting new people and visiting new places.
I work for clients from the public, charity and private sectors and my commissions include: Corporate events, PR, architectural & interiors, editorial, corporate & environmental portraits, industrial and education.
My photographs are regularly being used in magazines, newspapers, corporate literature and marketing material.
Have a look through the various galleries on the website, and if you like my style, do get in touch.
I am a member of SICIP and SWPP (Society of International Commercial & Industrial Photographers and Wedding Photographers) and I am fully insured.
Kind words from happy clients…
