Yes, it’s true. I was given a camera very early on in my life and was reluctant to ever share it. I took photos on family holidays and I remember going to Calais for the day for my brother and my shared birthday. I was 8. Dad ate snails and I took photos. But other than personal photography, that’s where the story freezes. Until one day, almost 22 years later, a friend asked me to photograph her wedding in Spain. It would be a reasonably quiet affair she said. Turned out to be stretched over 3 days with more than 150 guests. It was mad, fast, emotional and I loved it. I was completely and utterly hooked again on ‘making pictures’ as the Europeans say. There is an irreplaceable feeling of complete satisfaction at seeing the moment of time you have captured through a lens when the photo is developed…

And so a few more years, 5 motorbikes, 2 children and 1 dog later, working in PR (tech, media, music) and professional photography. I’ve been lucky to work with some great clients and with other photographers who have been a massive influence on me. And I simply love what I do.

Please get in touch if I can help in any way.
