Info

I'm a photographer based in Weymouth, Dorset, on the South Coast of England. I enjoy wildlife, nature and landscape photography as well as undertaking commercial photographic assignments.

Many of my photos are available to purchase as high quality prints through my Smugmug Shop.

If you are looking to license one of my images for commercial purposes, many are available through Getty Images. (If you can't find the image you're looking for on Getty, please contact me to discuss.)

Hire Me

I've been taking photographs in some form or another since being at primary school, my first camera being a Polaroid Button camera at the age of 8. I continued my interest in photography into secondary school where by saving up for a SLR and my own dark room. More recently, in 2011, I was lucky enough to do some international volunteer work and so decided to take a camera with me to get some decent shots of my travels. I bought myself a Canon 5D Mark II and my passion for photography became somewhat of an obsession.

In 2006 I completed an MBA with the OU Business School.I have over 16 years experience of working in the commercial and public sectors, specialising in corporate communications, event management and corporate governance. I believe that this experience helps me to understand the needs of my photographic clients and I always offer a professional, efficient and friendly service.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss any specific photographic assignment you may have in mind - I am based in Dorset, have a full clean driving license and my rates are very competitive.

All photos are available in a higher resolution than shown on this website and are watermark free. My equipment is to professional standard and includes a Canon 5D Mark II and a Canon 550D with the following lenses; Canon EF70-200mm 1:4L USM; Sigma 120-400mm 1:4.5-5.6APO HSM; Sigma 50mm 1:1.4 DG HSM; Canon EF24-105mm 1:4 L IS USM; Canon EF 17-40mm 1:4 L USM; Sigma 150mm 1:2.8 APO Macro DG HSM.
