I am an Advertising ,commercial and Portrait photographer working in a variety of genre for over twenty five years , I now specialise in portraits ,lifestyle and travel .Having started my career at an advertising agency I realised that it was the photographic images that really excited me and so I left the agency - to study photography .Graduating in the last century (BD-before digital).
Many years later with a few gongs and many thousands of Air Miles, I returned to Birmingham City University (BIAD) to study again and achieving an MA ( Visual Communication ) in 2010 .
This provided me with more knowledge and skills and has invigorated my work and also provides clients with more than just my photographic and production skills but also my new knowledge can provide an insight into the visual communication that is employed for each project and help enable the appropriate communication is made to the right audience .
Producing images for advertising agencies ,designers ,media production companies and direct clients . I relish editorial commissions and work Pro Bono for one charity client each year.
My associates and I provide location photography for the hospitality industry photographing food , restaurants interiors, exteriors ,personal and lifestyle images to provide the marketing material for hotels, venues and all aspects of the hospitality industry.
