Experience

I'm a former Professional Press Photographer with Johnston Press plc for 8 years plus and am now a full time freelance photographer running my own business covering everything from family home shoots (with mini studio set up) to formal studio shoots in a studio based in Milton Malsor and everything in between!

I shoot with a professional Nikon D4 camera and professional lenses only and pride myself in producing high quality images suitable for the smallest and largest of demands.

I produce a quick turnaround for all comissions and often have wedding packages back to the couple withing two weeks of the event, press and PR jobs within 24 hours and home/family shoots within a week all edited and archived.

Credentials

I am a member of the National Union of Journalists, The Federation of Small Businesses and have a full DBS (formerly CRB) check....updated in 2014.
