My passion for photography came from my father and my love of art from my mother.
Early childhood my father, after spending much of his time working abroad documenting railways and their surrounding areas, would allow me to fill the canisters with newly created slides.
The bright specs of dust shining in the light and the smells coming from the heat of the fan are still vibrant in my mind today.
Experiencing the far away places on slide, gave me an ingrained creative impulse to capture moments of time and inspired me for adventure.
Turning twelve my father went to work in Naples, where I was given a Canon AE1, I adored it! A black and white dark room was created in the spare room and many hours of experimenting and creating pictures from the dilapidated streets of Naples were spent.
My passion for photography and love of art led me to acquire BTEC (photography) and BA (Hons) Degree of applied art. Yearning for a desire to explore the world, a year traveling the wonders of Australasia and South Africa was accomplished.
First four years of my photographic career focused on assisting photographers who specialised in fashion and portraiture. I gained my knowledge, personal style and evolved into a full time creative commercial photographer, specialising in people for fashion, advertising and editorial sectors.
Today, with over ninteen years experience in the photographic industry I have shot many inspirational people and worked for some amazing clients, the best part is, I still love what I do!
