How it all started

I’m a commercial and editorial photographer based in Manchester, North of England. 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 have since worked as a photographer in York, Leeds, Knaresborough, Harrogate and now Manchester.

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.

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.

Yorkshire Photographer - Press, PR & Commercial
Harrogate, United Kingdom | Photography


We all want to look the best and present the best, whether it be in ourselves, businesses or products. And who can blame that? Image is everything. Whether you can't be there, or just need to proudly show something off, photography is often the best medium. A good photo sticks in the mind.

I'm passionate about seeing and creating cool images. Everyone should be! The world is such an amazing place visually, with so many amazing things to see and photograph.

For my sanity it's a good thing I became a photographer. I shoot commercial and editorial photography around the UK and overseas from my base in Manchester, UK.

What's pretty cool is I get commissioned and my photos licensed by commercial, private clients and newspapers all around the world. It's amazing when you think about all those thousands of people who get to see the world through my eyes!


MY BASE: Manchester, Greater Manchester, UK

WHERE I WORK: I often work in The North of England, UK and abroad. I'm happy to travel

WORK I DO: Take a look at my work, people feature heavily, I love using new techniques & ideas on new things, I'm pretty adaptable

FEES I CHARGE: No two jobs are the same and almost all need different planning and preparation. My fees start from £150 + VAT & exes. I'm happy to discuss your requirements and have a natter.

Freelance Photographer (2012 - Present)
Self Employed, myself only, Photography

I'm a freelance photographer and film-maker, working for my toughest boss yet, myself. I get about, working for all manner of clients, my favourites are the ones that like to have a bit of fun and enjoy creativity in photography. For news, of course, this is often out of the question (except for editorial and creative features), but for commercial, corporate or private clients, I'll shoot it if you need it.
