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 and business
Contrary to the picture above, I do like to smile and laugh a lot.. and talk a lot.
I like to “shoot”...
Bands and musicians, creating an image that reflects the music and personality of the band.
I can offer services for album covers, social media and I can shoot "live" gigs.
Portraits from lifestyle to corporate headshots and company profiles. In the age of social media it's now important to show your best self, either for an individual or company.
Model shoots tend to be fun and relaxed, from shooting lifestyle to studio work these gives images that standout with a style developed over years.
Stylist shoots are fantasy photography more art than a photograph. These style lends itself to cosplayers, actors and theatricals.. but also bring out the creative side of the person. These are great fun to get involved in and you'll see a lot of them on my website.
Shoots, what’s it all about...
I normally meet and plan shoots with the client before actually shooting if possible. Working with bands, musicians, companies, models, actors or individuals, we have to be on the same page regarding the shoot. The more planning the better the images will be.
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 also travel to locations with a mobile studio.
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.
