I was originally trained as a covert photographer during my time in HM Forces way back in the 80's. In those days night photography with uprated film was the order of the day.
When I left military service, family and time meant my photography was left behind but the passion never died I decided to take it up again in 2008 and I haven't looked back.
I found an interest in people and during the first two years I had a lot of success at local level competitions.
I looked to create realism with characters and actors and I was always looking for the emotion that photography could portray.
I was published internationally with my re-enactment war images, Front cover and spread in Skirmish Magazine iss78, and I won several local awards as well as recognition in Mid-phot national exhibitions.
Following my deployment to the South Atlantic with a new job I fell in love with wildlife.
I was lucky enough to win the FIAPS International Silver medal in 2014 from the Royal Photographic Society for one of my wildlife images.
In 2016 I have had another British Wildlife image declared a winner for the Worcestershire Wildlife Trusts photographic competition.
Since returning to the UK I have created a purpose built studio in the beautiful countryside of Wyre Forest. With 2.1 acres of stunning private woodland as a back drop and purpose built sets within, including (I believe) the only purpose-built waterfall set in the country. I can offer unique photography settings to create stunning images. All the shoots will be done here:
I have developed my own individual portrait style which will be recognised and hopefully enjoyed by clients of all ages.
