I am an image-maker. I am passionate about what I do. On shoots, I am spontaneous, adaptive and creative. I narrate a story, choosing the moment and only pressing the shutter when the scene in front of the camera moves me. I collaborate with other creatives to provide an experience and emotion. I will take you to somewhere you have never been before and show you things you did not know existed. I will lie in mud or knee deep in water to get the shot. I will create permanent visual images that can change your world. I will stay true to my creative vision and will show you another side of yourself – a beautiful, unseen side. How I conduct myself will have a positive impact on how other photographers are perceived. I will strive to ensure the integrity of those who publish my images. I am a photographer.


About me


Photography has been my passion since I was a child.  I was encouraged by my parents to pursue the hobby and I had my first photograph published in my local paper at just 16.  I went to night school whilst doing A levels to take my first qualification in photography.  A career in engineering and later teaching did not fulfill my passion to pursue my photography further. So I launched my freelance business and here we are :).  


Based in the Forest of Dean, I cover Gloucestershire, the South West, South Wales and surrounding areas.  I am also happy to travel further if required.

I offer a range of friendly and relaxing photography at your home or at a location or event of your choice. I also offer a range of wedding, boudoir, portrait and event photography packages.  You can feel confident in my services as I am fully insured with both public liability and professional indemnity insurances through Towergate Insurance - details available on request.


With an eye for detail, I aim to capture that special moment and provide you with images you will cherish.
