About
I’m a British-born “Lens Monkey”. Having bought my first film camera at age 13 it was a couple of years and some chance meetings before I knew for sure that the camera would be the tool of choice for a journey that would consume his entire life and take me around the world. By 17 I had discovered photographic printing at college and was shooting most days. I knew then photography would play a big part in my life.

Starting out in film photography and graphic design back in the 90’s and eventually working in television as a location lighting cameraman and director for over a decade has meant gaining a huge knowledge of lighting and storytelling. I was travelling the world making TV programs for around 10 years, working for all the major broadcasters such as Discovery and the BBC. I would be working with Oscar-winning crew members on high-end serial drama one week, to shows such as Ramsey’s kitchen nightmares and Dr Who.
