I am an experienced Advertising ,Commercial and Portrait photographer working for advertising agencies, designers and direct clients. specialising in portraits ,lifestyle and travel .

Producing Portraits and Commercial photography on location or in studios in Stratford on Avon, Coventry , Birmingham & London.

I have worked in London,New York ,Paris & Birmingham and I am now based in Warwickshire.

In 2008 with a few gongs and many thousands of Air Miles, I returned to Birmingham City University (BIAD) to study and gained an MA ( Visual Communication ) in 2010 .

This study provided me with more knowledge and skills and has invigorated my work and also provides clients with more than just my photographic and production skills.

I can provide an insight into the visual communication that is employed for each project and help enable the appropriate communication style is made to the right audience .

For many years I have delivered images for advertising agencies, designers, media production companies and direct clients. I relish editorial commissions and work with the third sector.

My associates and I provide location photography for the hospitality and travel industry photographing food, restaurants, interiors & exteriors, personal and lifestyle images to provide the marketing material for hotels & venues.

Living near Stratford on Avon a few miles from one of my studio facilities I work in London, Coventry & across Warwickshire and the Midlands.

I work as a one man reportage photographer or as a producer / photographer on large projects with many trusted associates.
