I started shooting professionally in 2005 having worked in event photography for a number of years, the appeal of a more controllable situation and the ability to create something new drew me into studio and location photo shoot work. Since then I have shot with many models in a range of styles, along with high end clients that have featured my work in high profile advertising campaigns, music releases, and major publications. While I was finding my feet with photo shoot work I experimented with various techniques and styles including; studio lighting, natural lighting, high fashion, boudoir and glamour, sports & fitness, and promotional shots. I have used Photoshop for post production and retouching for many years and love to add a creative spin to my work.
My main aim for any shoot is to create just one image that captures a moment in time perfectly. I like to have fun at a shoot while still getting the job done and like those I work with to be happy and relaxed too. I'm very laid back in my approach to photography enjoy catching a natural moment rather than trying to force it.
My preferred styles:
Editorial, telling a story in images with a running theme
Social documentary photography, capturing contemporary culture, fashion, and lifestyle of an individual or a group
Reportage, taking a step back from a scene and capturing natural moments
