I live in Poole and am a web designer by trade (yes, I did build this site), but also a photographer.
I’m 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.
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’ – a work still in progress, although I hope to exhibit my photos publicly at some point.
Photos I took before and after the fire and refurbishment of Barkers, Lower Parkstone, featured in the July/August 2015 edition of industry journal ‘Laundry & Cleaning Today’ (laundryandcleaningtoday.co.uk).
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.
In 2017 I was 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 that year’s RHS Photography Competition.
Also in 2017 I also started a major photographic project which has, so far, involved travelling over 2000 miles by car and on foot. I hope to complete this project at the end of 2019.
In 2018 and 2019 I was a member of the official Larmer Tree Festival photography team. One of my Festival photos was used inside ‘Salisbury Life’ magazine and another was chosen for the May 2019 cover, which you can see here.
Many 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.
