How it all started
I’m a commercial and editorial photographer based in Harrogate, Yorkshire. I’ve spent all of my working life up North. It all started when I escaped from my native Devon, to the green pastures of North Lincolnshire, way back in 2005.
I started working for a busy local daily newspaper as a press photographer in 2005. Then moved to a press agency a few years later. I worked on daily assignments for national newspapers and magazines. Since jumping ship in 2012, I been working as a freelance photographer and have taken on quite a few new challenges.
I’ve worked in this industry for a decade, working as a professional photographer for almost all my working life. I’ve got loads of experience and creative flair in creating interesting and dynamic images, and never stop learning. I work for national and international publications (newspapers and magazines), commercial clients and charities at home and abroad.
Areas of photographic expertise (and this site)
My work has always been diverse, but covering the commercial spectrum more often than not. As well as more unusual areas of editorial and commercial photography.

Favourite photo jobs
I am bloody awful at selling myself, but I have worked on some pretty cool jobs over the years.
This includes: Photographing mountaineers for the legendary PHD Mountain Software (who make expedition clothing) right here in Greater Manchester // Creating images for talented lingerie designer Christina Forte at a beautiful house in Ealing, London // Filming the amazing pole dancer Bendy Kate in Sheffield and Harrogate for her showreel, you see her on my Performance Photographer page // Accidentally upsetting John Prescott, causing him to show me his V-type, on a job for the Daily Mirror newspaper in Hull.
As well as being a professional photographer: I pride myself on writing in the first person. Love mountain biking and cycling. Head bang to heavy metal. Love travel to new places.
Take a look at my portfolio for a broad idea of my work. I am very a very adaptable photographer, constantly striving to develop my skills, ability and knowledge. In this ever-changing world I also keep abreast of the latest equipment and technological developments, always looking for new and different ways of seeing, capturing and creating. I love working on commissioned projects, creating a dialogue and working relationship with you to create the best images for the jobs.
