Born in the north east of England, I now live between Hartlepool and London.
Photography became a hobby in 2011 and is now a passion which I cram into weekends.
Contrary to the picture above, I do like to smile and laugh a lot.
I like to “shoot”...
Bands and musicians, creating an image that reflects the music and personality.
I can offer services for album covers, social media and I can shoot "live" gigs.
Stylist shoots, alternative fashion work and portraits.
I don't like to conform!
I don't do weddings!
Shoots, what’s it all about...
I normally meet and plan shoots with the client before actually shooting. Working with bands and musicians, we have to be on the same page regarding the shoot.
I have a home studio, The Rabbit Hole, a small space which is full of interesting props, lighting systems and backdrops. It has become a creative space for model work, portraits and alternative fashion.
I have found that I have a magic number for shoots, three hours. The time is spent getting to know each other, relaxing and normally laughing a lot, my work being a joint process to create the final images.
