About the photographer

After graduating with a 2.1 degree in Photomedia from Bournemouth University I have been specialising in Weddings and contemporary Portraiture, for which I have won several awards. I also have an interest in Social Documentary and Travel photography. All of my photography has a basic common thread of light and composition which comes from my time at Art College.

The galleries on this website reflect my interests. In 'Weddings' I have included highlights from recent Wedding commissions - here there is a mix of both relaxed and contemporary images, as well as a more formal style where required. 'Portraits' covers both contemporary styles using my portable studio facility, as well as location work using the available natural light. 'Social Documentary' is quite wide-ranging, including such diverse topics as Tibetan Monks performing at Stonehenge, people both at work and play, and official opening ceremonies. In the 'India' gallery I try to convey people sensitively, as well as giving a glimpse into their environment. Finally 'Miscellaneous' includes still lifes which give a sense of atmosphere and location, as well as more experimental images which involve the creative use of digital media.
