I’ve worked as a photographer since 1994 and began my career in advertising, working for one of Birmingham’s best advertising photographers, using film, in large format view cameras in the studio.
In 1999 I graduated from the University of Central England with a BA (Hons) in Visual Communications (Photography). There, I experimented with my studio lighting and location knowledge, and developed the location lighting techniques I’m now well known for. I’ve specialized in automotive photography since going freelance in 1999.
With cars, I'm known for my niche of Porsche 911s, Land Rovers, and the commercial vehicle market. Alongside that, have been commissioned extensively by the Camping and Caravanning Club, shooting everything from advertising and marketing to adventure features, in stills and video.
I’m very proud to say I’m a twice winner of the Audi/Guild of Motoring Writers Photographer of the Year (2010, 2012), have been voted into top three placings in the Headlineauto awards for three years running (2010, 2011, 2012), and was awarded Alumni of the Year by Birmingham City University in 2016.
I have been commissioned by much of the UK motoring media, from classics to performance car titles. Total911, Land Rover Monthly, Mini Magazine, 911& Porsche World, Octane, Autocar, Practical Classics in the UK; overseas my work has been in Auto Retro, Retroviseur (France) and 4×4 Magazine (Japan)
Advertising and Marketing photography clients include Jaguar Land Rover, Hyundai, Iveco, Andover Trailers, Carrier Transicold, Michelin tyres, ATS Euromaster, Renault Trucks, Schmitz Cargobull, JE Engineering, The Camping and Caravanning Club, Autofarm, and Garnett Keeler PR and Elan PR.
When not working, I am often found playing the drums in a swing band or, touring petrol stations in either the 1995 Range Rover Classic or 1957 Series One I've restored.
