“I love my job”
It’s such a pleasure to work on the many varied projects which come my way. I have had several requests for an About Me page, so here we are…
I majored in Photography as part of my BA Hons Graphic Design degree which I graduated from in 1995. Since then I’ve been working as a photographer and graphic designer, firstly in Derby, and then Bristol.
Bristol and the SW
Since moving to the South West, I’ve become a full time freelance photographer and have been building up the company. I now proudly work with many corporate clients including Lloyds Bank, Western Power Distribution and PricewaterhouseCoopers and various charities including Parkinson’s UK and Comic Relief to name a few.
Graphic Design & the importance of negative space
I like to think that my graphic design knowledge is an important part of my photography work. I love working with clients, art directors, picture editors and designers and I find that I can understand their photographic needs in relation to a specific usage or layout very quickly, something which comes in very useful when studio time is tight or the sun is setting and I need to get that last shot of the day in the bag
Whilst actually taking on my first commercial jobs in 2004, I’ve been working as a full time photographer since 2005. I have recently had a photography exhibition at The Tobacco Factory, Bristol, which celebrated ten years of being a full time professional photographer.
I live with my wife and family in Wotton-under-Edge, Gloucestershire. It’s a great location as it’s only around 30 minutes from major cities like Bristol and Cheltenham. It allows me to work all around the South and Midlands with ease. I often travel further afield and have been working in Scotland and Ireland recently.
I hope you enjoy looking around the site, if you’d like to find out more about me then have a look at my Favourites and Firsts Page, and please do get in touch if you would like to discuss any future photography.
