About me

From the moment I unwrapped a Kodak Disc 400 camera for my tenth birthday, I have been a photographer. Taking photographs is more than a job to me, it’s a vocation.

I know that being a photographer is more than just having the right equipment, it’s about having the right attitude and approach. The most important thing of all is the relationships I build with my clients and subjects, making people feel comfortable and at ease so I can capture them at their best and most real.

Having photos taken doesn’t have to be a stressful experience. A big part of my job is building a rapport with someone who hates being photographed, helping them relax and enjoy the experience.

Whether it is a crying toddler, a grumpy director or a nervous bride, I know that it is the little personal interactions that will help turn a good photo into a great photo. The highlight for me will always be presenting clients with photos that surpass their expectations.

Based in Chalfont St Peter, Buckinghamshire, I undertake commissions locally, across London, throughout the UK and overseas.

Please have a look around my site and check out some of my own favourite photographs from my career so far. Feel free to get in touch if you have any questions or if I can be any help.
