Specialist in : Natural History & Landscape Photography : High Speed Motion Capture : Photography & Digital Workflow Training : Colour Management Services


I was born in 1959 and have been working as a professional photographer since completing my City & Guilds 744 in 1979, working for local and regional press, then as a studio photographer involved with everything from vehicles to glassware, portraits and weddings.

After getting 'roped in' to a one-off job as camera assist for Match of The Day on a very drafty and cold gantry at Aston Villa football ground back in the mid 80's I went on to complete a couple of courses in Audio and Video recording at the School of Film & Television in Beconsfield.

I have worked for corporate and broadcast clients from all over the world and in most fields from ENG news to studio-based programming.

I have always had a passion for wildlife and natural history and have developed a thorough understanding of fieldcraft, derived from far too much time spent in the company of gamekeepers, not to mention the odd 'rum character'!

But above all else my passion is technical excellence and creativity in all aspects of photography; be it wildlife and landscape, or in the studio, there is no room for a lack of creativity. And technical expertise is what frees your mind to be creative!

I use full frame Nikon D4 and D3 cameras, together with D800E and D3X when needed, and I've even been known to use a Canon or two!

I am a firm believer in doing as much as possible with as little as possible, so my camera bag isn't very big at all!

I also believe in using the right tool for the job, irrespective of manufacturer.

Nothing upsets or annoys me more than seeing a great image that's been tortured by awful processing, so about five years ago I began offering Digital workflow tuition services; and now devote as much time teaching this to photographers of all levels as I do actually teaching photography or taking my own pictures.

I am now a regular instructor for the Calumet Academy.
