Professional Food and Portrait Photographer
With a can-do approach, in-depth understanding of technical requirements and bags of experience delivering successful campaigns on time and within budget, I’m proud to have so many long-term clients.
From house hold names to start ups…
European multi location shoots to carefully curated macro images shot in my studio…
From editorial to world wide campaigns…
Shooting food is my passion.
Egg shell blue. Love it. So underrated.
Without a doubt, this would be the day I left my office job in order to pursue a career in photography. The euphoria was of course interspersed with fear of the unknown but thankfully this didn’t last too long. I couldn’t imagine doing anything else with my life now.
Photographer I most admire:
There are so many wonderful photographers I admire and look up to, but Annie Leibovitz for me is the most inspiring. Both in her work and the way she conducts herself.
Least favourite thing:
The sensation of dry hands on a wet wooden spoon when washing up.
The Picture of Dorian Gray. Many hours spent reading it again and again.
Dipping my chips into McDonald’s chocolate milkshake.
I was once employed for 3 months to sort out a paper filing system in a hospital. I basically roamed around a huge windowless room of files, alone, for 8 hours every day, trying to add some form of order to it all.
COFFEE! I may have a bit of a problem with the quantities I consume, although I have recently imposed a ‘no coffee after midday’ rule. My friends appreciate this a lot.
Unusual thing about me:
I played the violin up until I was 17, which was also around the same time that I started shaving my legs for my cycling. I wasn’t very cool at school.
Things I most like to photograph:
I love portrait photography. Especially when working one on one with a subject. I have played around with lots of different formats to allow me to be as close to my sitter as possible without distorting their features. This has led to me shooting with a 6×7 camera where I only get 10 frames per roll of film. This method has completely changed how I work with my subjects and I feel that it has added to the enjoyment I get from portrait sittings.
