I live in Poole and am a web designer by trade (yes, I did build this site!), but also a photographer.
Documentary and street photography is my preference, closely followed by botanical imagery and landscapes.
Since December 2012 I have been working on ‘The Lower Parkstone Photographic Project’, which photographically documents the various businesses of Lower Parkstone in Poole, Dorset. This is a ‘snapshot in time’ and a work still in progress, although I hope to exhibit this work in 2018.
Photos I took before and after the fire and refurbishment of Barkers, Lower Parkstone, for my project, featured in the July/August 2015 edition of industry journal ‘Laundry & Cleaning Today’ (laundryandcleaningtoday.co.uk).
In May 2015 I was commissioned by the Landmark Trust to take photos of Sir Antony Gormley’s ‘Landmark’ figure, at Kimmeridge, in Dorset. One of the photos I shot appears in the Trust’s promotional material and has also been used by Sir Antony Gormley.
In 2017 I was proud to be selected to show a portfolio of my botanical work at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, where I won a Bronze medal. This was part of the 2017 RHS Photography Competition.
I am a member of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ), which represents a broad range of media professionals. My photos have been purchased by the public, estate agents, solicitors and charities, amongst others; I also regularly work to commission.
Most of the images shown on my website are available to purchase; also for editorial or advertising use. Please contact me to discuss prices, terms and conditions.
