Portfolio

A collection of photographs

From my portfolio I have shared a few images from various places, situations and observations. I find inspiration in peoples faces, behavior and reactions. In the small details of everday life...

One of my favorite quotes is It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head.

About me

I love photographing people, esecially in their own environments including portraiture and reportage. Landscapes and the odd abstract view found now and again whilst wondering around on long walks.

I work closely with clients to create photography which is contemporary, stylish and stress-free. This style of work is often refered to as ‘Lifestyle’ photography or ‘Reportage’ photography. My professional but friendly and informal style combines wonderfully to enhance your photographic experience and is reflected in the natural smiles and relaxed expressions in my images.

I photograph using natural light where possible capturing natural expressions and can work on location and in studio. My approach to photography is about people in natural situations. It combines the best of photojournalistic imagery and stylised settings to produce strong, dynamic images. Couples are not over posed in an unnatural way, but are encouraged to react with one another, bringing out their true personalities.

My clients are unique individuals; each with differing personalities, relationships and requirements. I work hard to ensure that my photography captures the essence of each unique personality. Every portrait session, family shoot and wedding shoot is built around the individual client and is approached with flexibility, creativity and above all, with sensitivity.
