Welcome to my website, I hope you enjoy my work.
I first got into photography when my Dad gave me his East German Praktica 35mm film camera In the early 80s. Despite it being basic, needing to use a light meter, and having to focus manually, I really enjoyed it and also tried my hand at processing film in the darkroom at school.
After leaving school I found other distractions, but in 2006, with the advent of digital photography and a feeling of nostalgia, I bought an entry level camera, joined a camera club and got out and about taking photos again.
Since then I've enjoyed success at competition level, winning the Lancashire & Cheshire Photographic Union individual competition in 2009, and in 2016 being part of the UK team that won the FIAP World Black & White Sports Print competition. I've also achieved a credit from the Photographic Alliance of Great Britain (CPAGB) and a BPE1* from the British Photographic Exhibition.
As I've progressed, I've realised that it's people photography I enjoy most, especially where I can combine this with other passions.
I love music and gigs, and I've worked with Warrington band Sweet Release and did the cover design for their Darkest Hour EP.
I also work with Phoenix Fire Amateur Boxing Club in Warrington, covering the occasional amateur boxing show. Images from various past events are available to purchase on this website and a proportion of all my sales goes back to the club funds.
You can see a wide range of my work in my Gallery including event, equestrian and wedding photography. I also have a Facebook page, so please visit and 'like' the page to see some of my latest work, and and if you'd like to get in touch visit my contact page.
