I am self taught through assisting, which culminated during the 12 year period I was Annie Leibovitz and Richard Avedon's local assistant

I have shot mostly portraits during my career to date, though dabbling in Landscape & Architecture, enjoying the peace and structure these allow. I have completed Ad campaigns for HSBC, BMW, Adidas and AVEDA amongst others, but my principal work has been portraiture for Vogue, Glamour, the Telegraph, Times and ES Magazines, Harpers & Queen, W, Red and Drapers Fashion etc

My ethos such as, is that photography is no more, or less, than visual story telling?  the signficant pillars of that being to inspire, to educate and very occasionally even to shock; but always to try to help the reader engage with the subject and to comprehend the contrast or beauty in a given context...and to laugh! Finally to ensure my subject departs with their dignity intact!
