Somerset Family and Commercial photographer
I love my job. So many people say that - but I really do! I love being a photographer and a business owner.
When I was eleven I took a school questionnaire with the purpose of finding out what career I would be suited to. My results came back with two answers: Game Keeper and Photographer! Needless to say that I was over the moon - I had already begun to dream about photography, although not so much game keeping!
From then on in, it has pretty much been the focus of my life. I took some time out to play in a band and write music (that’s a whole other story!), trained in London and worked with photographers and their agencies at the picture desks of national newspapers and magazines.
Taking the leap into self employment in 2005 was a little daunting at first, but I haven’t looked back. Working as a photographer has introduced me to some extraordinary people, taken me traveling around the country and exposed me to all sorts of new ideas; seeing my work published throughout national press and media and over the mantlepiece in many a family home.
I’m always on the look out to develop what I do and how I work, the technical world of digital photography is fast moving with a constant stream of new and exciting techniques.
To keep me in check I also run a Pinhole Photography club, the old fashioned way in a dark room under red safety light, and teach all ages how to get started and develop their own path in light and camera craft.
Whatever you're photographic needs, be they quirky, alternative, commercial or private, please get in touch ....
