About Me

 I am a full-time professional wedding, portrait & commercial photographer. I started my career in TV watching lighting cameramen set up and use light perfectly for their work. I was taught in my teens by Bruce Pinkard a friend of my fathers and well renowned and respected photographer of the 70's and 80's. I use my studio as a base but work all over the country and world. I have won awards for my work and take great pride in what I do. My documentary wedding photography is balanced with gorgeous contemporary portraits. I hope you’ll see in my images how comfortable people are when they’re in front of my camera. 90% of my job is people, the other 10% is taking the images. I live with my partner in Northamptonshire not far from my studio and have 2 teenage children and a soppy dog! I hope you enjoy my work and look forward to hearing from you.


Below is what just a few clients have contacted me to say:
