I prefer to tell a story visually or convey an emotion, I want to guide the viewer to feel as I feel when they look at my imagery. I have been able to call myself a professional portrait photographer since 2013 and have been fortunate to have worked with some amazing clients and organizations including Oasis Acadamy, AEG Electrolux, Coppafeel, Stewart2, Cobi & Coco cakes as well as the opportunity to capture during London fashion week. My work has been featured in various Newspapers, Magazines, Galleries, and poster sites, The special effects Lens manufacture "Lensbaby" have promoted my images, I am one of the lucky ones receiving test products from a major manufacturer. along with a fair few people's social media profile pictures.
For me, the key to success is personal progression so whenever possible I like to plan my next personal project, I am lucky enough to have like-minded creative individuals whom I call friends that allow me to test and try out new techniques and ideas before using them on client assignments.

Portrait photography is so much more than having an expensive DSLR but more about communication and lighting. Portraiture is at the forefront of what I do
I haven’t swashbuckled with pirates, nor have I swam the English Channel. I haven’t even been to Antarctica. But I have traveled to many faraway places, created a lot of still and moving pictures for myself and others. And I’ve made it my life’s goal to be as creative as possible towards everything I endeavor. I was born in Belfast and grew up in London and the South East. Introduced to photography by my uncle using a Canon AE1 film camera, I'm now a self-confessed photography nut, Specializing in Creative Portraiture, Editorial, Fine Art and Wedding photography. self-confessed gadget nerd, obsessed with camera equipment new and old, Film and TV buff and loves visiting new places, oddly drawn to the derelict and abandoned, something about the urban decay captures my imagination, I was lucky enough to have been able to visit the abandoned town Pripyat and Chernobyl nuclear power plant, which melted down disastrously in 1986.

I fell in love with the idea of capturing the emotion of a moment, someone once said to me a photograph is a reflection of life, It's for this reason that I will always primarily be a reportage photographer, looking to take as many natural unposed photos to capture those feelings and ensure that they are never forgotten...
