I got my first camera at the age of 11 and started studying photography soon after, eventually taking a course at the London College of Printing. I went on from there to work in various London photographic labs where I met loads of great photographers, some of whom I went on to assist. It was during this time that I learnt my trade and gained a wealth of practical and technical experience. I also began to develop a long-term project, photographing people I met through their work, in their environments; from the local hardware shop to location shoots in far away places.
After positive feedback from design and advertising agencies, I started my business in 2001, telling stories for large corporates. Highlights have been working with Intercontinental Hotels, Pearson, Eurostar and National Grid, as well as closer to home with the London Development Agency and the London South Bank University.
I am passionately inquisitive about how the world goes around and the people I meet every day. Working with government agencies and large industrial, financial, transport and service companies has given me opportunities to photograph behind the scenes at some fascinating locations. My portrait work has also led to work with fantastic charities, communicating their key messages through the people they support.
My photographs have been selected for the Association of Photographers Awards, the Schweppes Photographic Portrait Prize and been exhibited in the National Portrait Gallery. I have also won numerous awards with my clients for our creative work together.
