I am originally from Slough, south of London.
I have been a professional photographer since 2001 when I started out as a wedding photographer.
Along the way I have worked with some awesome people in the music and film industry along with fashion models and even special effects makeup artists and Magicians.
I have a Youtube channel that is slowly growing, where I offer advice and reviews on photography products that I have tested. I also have the added luxury of working as a photography consultant for Park Cameras in Burgess Hill. This allows me to borrow equipment to review and test in my personal projects and share my thoughts my audience on Youtube.
I have tested lots of different photography equipment over the years such as Canon, Nikon, Panasonic and now have settled on Sony due to the quality and sharpness of the lenses as well as being travel friendly as appose to big DSLR cameras and glass.
As well as photography I have a keen interest in video and this has allowed me to working in other countries with charities such as The British Moroccan Society. Recently I was asked to film their desert rally which took us through the Sahara desert in 4x4 cars. The trip was amazing and magical but more importantly for me, I was able to capture the local people and tribes. I was able to engage with them on a completely different level, capturing them in their everyday environment and in their day to day lives in the middle of nowhere.
In order to stay creative I have challenged myself to try and shoot at least one personal project per month. In my opinion these projects have helped me become a better photographer.
I like to keep myself upto date with the photography world as much as possible by visiting the photography show each year and catching up with likeminded friends in the business. I find this helps to keep my portfolio fresh by networking and keeping in the know.
