I’ve had a camera in my hands since I was three years old. Both my parents were in the theatre then television here in the UK, so I guess it’s in the blood!
I studied to be a graphic designer, but ended up as an Art Director working for Ad Agencies in Central London during the eighties.
Over the years I’ve moved out of London and now live in Bletchley. I’ve set up studios, run design companies and now find myself shooting stills, directing models to pose and catwalk for fashion magazines and fashion shows.
I’m currently involved in a producing role with two feature films, a film for TV, a comedy series and two documentaries. I've just started shooting material for a Sky TV series 'Day in the life with.." and 'Make me a model', also for Sky.
I also use my design skills to produce Web Sites, Executive Summaries, and Sponsorship Documents to support funding activities. I shoot stills for films and as a camera operator for TV content.
I am also hired by other photographers and videographers to light and stage larger photographic collaborations.
I’m looking for work as a stills cameraman or involvement with film development.
Please contact me if you would like to see further examples of my work or if you would like references.
