My personal practice is as mixed as my love of photography. I enjoy landscape, wildlife, motorsport, and street photography but my first love is reportage.
One of the reasons I find photography so enthralling is that it has everything. I enjoy the technical detail and the artistic expression, it drives me to go to places and to do things that I would never do otherwise and helps me to connect to the world around me. After moving away from film during the burgeoning digital revolution, I’ve since returned to it for much of my personal work. Experimenting with film and my love of the analog process has inspired me to improve my overall practice
I work closely with F8Creates, an independent creative agency, and with London Camera Exchange, both in Worcester. I’m a photographer for shootrewind.com, a company offering analog process photography to artisanal producers, and I’m involved with a number of local photography groups.
Photography has taken me to Le Mans and to the bear filled woods of eastern Finland. I’ve gone behind the scenes in restaurants, bakeries and factories alike, as well as wedding parties and corporate events. It has been my drive, my focus, and my passport.
There’s a bunch more stuff on my blog and on my social media –

A few weeks ago I invited myself along to a friend’s race meeting. Neil and his dad were racing their very pointy and very red Dalara f302.
I’ve just my third crack at street photography in London, this time with the gang from streethunters.net
There is something unsettling about having the time, the gear, the subject, and to still lack inspiration.
I was lucky enough to get to a FujiFilm session on their new medium format masterpiece, the GFX50S.
Nearly four years ago I bought my much loved and tiny bit awesome Canon 5D Mk III which has become the cornerstone of my load-out.
About three months ago I did something stupid. I bought a Leica…
