I am a largely self taught freelance photographer. I live in Upper Beeding, West Sussex, United Kingdom. Upper Beeding is a village just north of Brighton, at the foot of the South Downs and in the valley of the River Adur and this fantastic semi-rural environment provides boundless inspiration for my work.
My passion for photography has been life long. I have studied with the Open College of the Arts and I was a finalist in the Essence of Brighton competition 2006, exhibiting several images at the North Laine Gallery in Brighton in connection with this competition and also subsequently as part of the "Open Brief" exhibition in 2007.
I have also exhibited work in the Steyning Festival 2010, Worthing Open Houses 2010, in Bramber 2010 and 2011 and as part of Steyning Arts 2011.
The subject areas I specialise in are portraiture and making images that place my own interpretation on the natural and built environment. All my images are digital and my preference is for a minimum of manipulation.
For portraiture, a preference for informality and minimal manipulation maximises the ability of subjects to communicate their personalities and feelings through the image.
For recording the natural and built environment, this approach allows light, colour, pattern and texture to communicate the attributes and mood of the scene.
My work currently comprises three areas :
-Capturing images of people at work or play including reportage style photography mostly undertaken as specific assignments for clients.
-Recording the natural and built environment as pictures for display and greetings cards.
-Making images which communicate my view of the world and which may have been previously exhibited.
I would be delighted to undertake specific assignments for you or for your organisation which may describe your leisure or work life or you may like me to photograph landscapes or buildings or other subjects for private or corporate use.
So if you like my style and have a particular requirement please contact me for an informal discussion.
I am a Member of the SWPP and Bureau of Freelance Photographers. I also have enhanced CRB disclosure. Please note, however, that I do not undertake wedding photography.
