MY APPROACH

A former Staff Photographer with local newspapers, I am discreet and professional in my photography style. 

I have photographed everything from royalty, sports event (eg Northampton Saints/NTFC), police drugs raids, motorsport (F1) through to cheque presentations, award ceremonies and charity appeals. I treat every photography session with the same dedication, attention to detail and enthusiasm. 

I capture moments but also 'set up' and manage photo-shoots, whether it be for a wedding, business conference or family photo-shoot. 

I am confident to either blend in or take charge, but mostly to capture a narrative of your event. 

Story telling is one of the basics of press photography along with the ability to catch the viewers attention and make them want to find out more.  I am often in situations that can change, develop and demand an eye for noticing small moments as they happen. 

I always provide a variety of images ready to use within 24/48 hours and usually 10-14 days for weddings.  I can supply black and white images alongside standard colour at no extra cost, just ask.

All photographs are personally edited, hand picked, high resolution and are supplied via USB/memory stick (with the option of prints, canvasses and albums as an added chargeable extra)
