About me
I approach a photoshoot with the objective of creating stylish, contemporary, sometimes provocative and usually unique ART. Portrait Photography has bought me closer to Fashion and Glamour in recent years and I have been very lucky to share a few laughs with some stunning ladies - as, I believe, we are here to enjoy ourselves as well as create something of lasting value.  I think if a model approaches me to shoot, in the back of my mind is the thought what can I deliver to create images that set themselves apart from others?'  I'm heavily into shooting with a theme or a back story or at the very least a set of props to create movement/activity. 

A polite request:  I'll gladly accept friend requests if there is some urge to shoot, so please don't friend me unless you actually want to go out and create something/arty/worth looking at.  I can't understand people who friend me and then make no effort to contact me.  Even better, send me an idea, a date or a rough idea of what you want to shoot.  If that sounds like you, great.

The urge to create something original and thought provoking is taking me into new areas and new territories.  Photography, in the right hands, should create awe and make people think.  90% of the following were created from december 2011.

A sort of greatest hits video of some of my more 'effects based' shoots is here:
