I am a British photographer and videographer, originally from London, shooting professionally since 1990 for editorial and advertising clients.
A little bit about how I got into photography... as a child I used to spend hours watching my Grandfather's slideshows on his Kodak Carousel projector and watch him develop his own photos in his darkroom. I used to marvel at his photos of the far-flung destinations he’d been lucky enough to visit! Many years later after leaving University with a Business diploma, I quit my office-bound desk job in London and followed my dream of becoming a full time photographer embarking on the NCTJ Photojournalism course in Sheffield. That led to my first full time job as a staff photographer for a regional newspaper, the Surrey Comet, in the suburbs of London.
After eventually becoming a freelance press photographer, I worked in central London covering news, sport, entertainment and features for news agencies and public relations companies.
Currently I am working for a number of high-profile corporate clients, advertising and public relations agencies producing stills and video for marketing and promotional purposes. I have been in charge of the official photography team at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona every year since 2006 www.mobileworldcongress.com. I have been working for Police related media and shooting publicity photos and video for the Met Police of London for several years.
I have travelled extensively across Africa and Europe covering disaster response campaigns during periods of conflict.....on several occasions traveling to Sarajevo during the Bosnian siege to shoot for disaster relief campaigns for humanitarian organisations, visiting South Sudan to document the effects of civil war and Rwanda to cover the displacement of refugees after the genocide.
My work often appears in newspapers, magazines and books and in corporate publicity. I film and produce documentaries, testimonials and highlight videos which are used for web and social media purposes.
With bases both in Barcelona and London, I am available to work on video and photographic commissions in either location and further afield.
