SHOOT NEWS: I'm currently primarily on the lookout for interesting and unique models to shoot for a personal project. There will be no money to pay you guys, there will be no money charged. All shoots are on a trade basis and will result in a zero profit book. I'm going for images of individuals shot in cool ways, not cannon fodder commercial stuff. Shout up if you want to be part of something interesting, I'm looking for one hundred people!
On a commercial note, I am as always available for commercial hire, and if you feel you'd like to use what I can do for you in your business, then please feel to get in touch. I'm friendly, happy and always willing to help!
I'm an experienced photographer (you name it, I've photographed it) born and raised in Derbyshire, England through Glasgow, Scotland now emigrated to New Zealand since 2007 to pursue a better life.
Imaging is my passion and my lifeblood. My day job involves highly specialised and industry leading imaging and publication in a specific sphere, and that leaves my personal work you see here and on my website as my true passion - and at the forefront of that is portraiture.
I'm not in the market for producing straight forward work really and would prefer my stuff to make you stop and look for longer than five seconds. My photography here has one purpose - to be entirely focused on art and the people in it, undiluted by the need to pay bills and earn a crust. If you fancy a challenge and want to work with someone not afraid to try new things, you're here.
I do travel globally - in the last few years, there's been the UK, mainland Europe, the US (California and Texas) and stops in China and Hong Kong, so really, if you want to work together, don't be afraid to sing out.
Thanks for looking, drop us a line for whatever reason, be they comments, praise (or ridicule!) or to arrange some work.
