I've been taking photographs since I was child and became enchanted by the noise the shutter made. I could not wait for the photographs to arrive in the post from the lab to relive the exact moment I pressed the button.
It's been the same all my life. I trained using film and learned how to process in a darkroom, a snug dark place where magic happened and images appeared. With the advent of digital photography I jumped right in and fell in love with the instant results that allowed for the most spontaneous photography, with amazing results.
Photographing people is a thrill, an honour and so much fun. Every shoot, like every person, is different and my aim, every time I pick up my camera, is to capture the world through my lens.
My work has appeared in books, magazines, newspapers, calendars and even on the BBC but my favourite photographs are the ones hanging on people's walls that I know give them great pleasure every time they look at them.
You can contact me by email or through my Facebook page and I try to respond to all queries as quickly as possible.
I'd love to capture your world through my lens.
