I am a very experienced Advertising, Commercial and Portrait photographer working for advertising agencies, designers and direct clients, specialising in portraits, lifestyle and tourism .
Producing Portraits and Commercial photography on location or in studios in Stratford on Avon, Warwickshire, Cotswolds, Coventry, West Midlands, Birmingham & London.
I have worked in London, New York, Paris & Birmingham and I am now based in Warwickshire, England.
In 2008, with a few gongs and many thousands of Air Miles, I returned to Birmingham City University (BIAD) to study and gained a Masters Degree in Visual Communication in 2010 .
This study provided me with more knowledge and skills, invigorated my practice, and allows me to provide my 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 to communicate to the target audience with appropriate images.
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 many hotels & venues.
Whilst I live near Stratford-upon-Avon, a few miles from one of my studio facilities, I not only work in Stratford but also in London, Birmingham, Coventry & across Warwickshire and the Midlands.
I work as a one man reportage photographer or as a producer / photographer on large projects with a crew of many trusted associates including, assisting photographers, digital operators, hair stylists and make-up artists.
Portraits are held in the National Portrait Gallery and archive material in the Photography collection at Birmingham Central Library
