Photography is in my genes...
My great-grandfather, grandfather and uncle were all photographers. I followed in their footsteps and now have over 25 years’ experience earning a living within the profession. For 19 years I worked full-time for provincial newspaper groups, a challenging experience, at times photographing up to a dozen assignments in one day ranging from sport to news features. The most rewarding aspect was the close collaboration with journalists to focus on the background story for a photograph. Having gained a wealth of knowledge and experience, in 2006 I started my own freelance photography business.
My passion for my craft and infectious enthusiasm are evident in my work. An eye for detail and the ability to listen enable me to deliver unique, eye-catching results to suit your requirements and budget. By taking time to understand the subject and purpose for the image, I produce a photograph that fulfills my customer's needs. I call this ‘CreativeEmpathy' - an eye for what you need. It works, as can be seen from the testimonials on my web site.
I invite you to explore the galleries and Commissioned project examples to view the range of images I have produced using Creative Empathy. All the photographs displayed, apart from those in the 'Personal' gallery were commissioned by individuals, charities, local authorities, businesses and higher education institutions. My images are used in promotions, marketing campaigns, brochures, web sites and the Press throughout the UK and worldwide, as well as displayed in frames on walls preserving cherished moments shared with family and friends.
Whatever your requirements, business or personal, whatever your budget, my aim is to produce the very best for you. To discuss any kind of photographic project, please call me on 07770 616121 or email me
If you are passionate about receiving the best photographs that represent you, your organisation or campaign, then you have come to the right place!
I want to understand what type of images you need and for what purpose they will be used well before my camera comes out of it's bag. In this way I can produce the best results for you - the very definition of 'CreativeEmpathy'.
I grant clients permission to use my images as, when and where they like for no additional charge - provided they are not sold for profit. Photographs can be supplied quickly via upload to 'DropBox' or FTP (file transfer protocol) and produced at the highest resolution to disk suitable for large print publication as well as for the web.
I give you the confidence to present yourself as yourself. An image that looks like you, says something about you and that other people can recognise as you.
Weddings: I specialise in capturing unobtrusively the real events of your day, not bossing everyone about and spoiling the celebration..
Why use bland, un-imaginative stock images from the web or snaps taken on a mobile phone when you can have unique, bespoke professional images to promote your products, services or even yourself?
....& If you are organising a promotional event I have over 25 years of experience to know what the press are looking for. I follow your brief, create professional images suitable for press publication and quickly upload them to 'DropBox' for you to send out.
I love to share my enthusiasm, skills and passion for photography and have facilitated many community photographic projects.
These include; environmental and photography exhibitions, photographic walks, exercise referral schemes for people recovering from illness and also teaching photography to people suffering from physical and mental illness. I am available for bespoke one-to-one tuition whatever your age or previous experience.
