My parents gave me my first camera - a Kodac Instamatic - when I was 10 years old. I spent many happy hours experimenting and exploring with it and since that time, I now seldom travel anywhere without my camera.

My photography is based on portraying the immense diversity of our world from a personal perspective. A visual diary of encounters and places I have explored and visited.

My home on Dorset's 'Jurassic Coast' boasts one of our most beautiful and historic coastlines - an UNESCO World Heritage Site. It is the perfect environment for photography and as a result, features heavily in my images.

Events and film stills are a growing area of work and commissions are welcomed, having been asked to photograph a myriad of subjects, for businesses and individuals alike.

Photography also plays an integral role in my other business Moth Design - developing my client-based photography for design and website projects.

For those who are starting out with DSLR photography and require some help, I also offer one-to-one training.
