As a teen in the early 90’s I spent a week taking ‘very serious’ photographs with my Dad’s camera. It turned out I hadn’t loaded the film properly and had no pictures. I really fell in love with photography in 2002, making studio lights out of baked bean tins and learning to use a manual film camera and darkroom just in time for the digital revolution. Against all the odds I’ve been lucky enough to earn my living making photos since 2008.

I'm always on the lookout for good light, interesting compositional elements and that hard to define something else- a moment, an atmosphere, a connection. 

People.
Places.
People doing interesting things 
in interesting places.

This is my visual journal I suppose.
