I am a lifestyle photographer creating authentic images, working closely with client and creatives from the begining of the project to the end ensures we answer the question and deliver what the agency / client is asking for, and more.
I shoot all over the world, and am based between London, Ibiza, South Africa and the USA, and have shot throughout Africa, Asia the US and Europe.
My Father’s darkroom, was where I was first seduced by the magic and captivated by the romance of black and white imagery, I realised I was only ever going to be a photographer from the moment my father placed a box brownie and a Super 8 in my five year-old hands.
Ever since then, photography has been the one constant in my life. At eight I was developing my own black and white shots, at 14 I left home and school, and at 16 I was assisting London photographers, turning 18 I was paid for my first picture and by the time I was 20 I was scratching a living.
A few years later I opened my own studio, continuing to learn the intricate challenges of lighting and composition in this controlled environment while discovering and developing an ability to uncover the true character of subjects.
Then craving experience and adventure outside of the studio, I left for California, New York and Oman. This period, working through such a vast spectrum of outdoor light conditions rarely found in the UK, developed my innate ability to shoot outdoors, manipulating available and artificial light to achieve desired results, both natural and surreal.
Eighteen years ago I returned to London where I amalgamated location shooting with strong studio skills and, adding my understanding of how to make anyone, client or a subject, feel instantly at home in my studio or in front of my lens, began taking on advertising work for major clients.
2005 I became Artist in Residence at Team Saatchi where I really developed a greater understanding of the process and benifited from working closely with clients and agency. Directing video became a large part of my work flow which is integral in what we produce today.
Working either with London and NY ad agencies or direct to client, we are looking forward to talking to you about producing your next project.
