Photographer in Dorset, UK
I live in Poole, Dorset.
I’m a member of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ), which represents a broad range of media professionals.
Since February 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’ – a work still in progress, although I aim to exhibit my photos publicly.
My photos have been purchased by the public, estate agents, solicitors and charities, amongst others. I also regularly work to commission.
2021 – Awarded RHS Silver Gilt Medal
Six of my photographs will be on display at the Saatchi Gallery, in London, from 18th September – 9th October, as part of the 2021 RHS Botanical Art & Photography Show.
My images are from a photographic project that involved travelling over 2000 miles by car and on foot, through six UK counties.
2017 – Awarded RHS Bronze medal, with 6 photos displayed at RHS Chelsea Flower Show
I was selected to show a portfolio of my botanical work at the RHS Chelsea Flower Show, where I was awarded a Bronze medal. This was part of that year’s RHS Photographic Competition.
2015 – Commissioned to photograph Sir Antony Gormley’s ‘Landmark’ figure, Kimmeridge, Dorset
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 appeared in the Trust’s promotional material and has also been used by Sir Antony Gormley, and by a private collector of his work.
