About Me

Aviation and travel are what provided me with the photography bug back before children, mortgages and all those adult responsibilities that come along! Since then I have developed beyond taking photos of little black dots at airshows (they really were planes dad!) and logging every inch of everywhere the family and I have been as the kids grew up.

I have through a combination of technology, training, constant learning and a steady growth in experience developed a far more considered approach to my photography. I am a member of the Royal Photographic Society (RPS) and have been achieved their 'Licentiateship' accreditation (LRPS) which is the first distinction level of the society. As well as the initial photography aspect of capturing the best images one can, I have undertaken formal training on both Lightroom and Photoshop and continue learning with these modern 'darkroom' replacements all the time.

In 2017 I added a DJI drone to the range of equipment I use and after developing my skills with this I have qualified as a Civil Aviation Approved (CAA) drone operator and hold a current PfCO Certification and night flying approval.  This allows me to undertake commissioned aerial photographic and video work (and you can see some examples on the website).  I currently operate 2 drones allowing a different options for access and weather conditions.

Overall much of my regular work is based on projects for businesses and encompasses a range of clients from local businesses to educational organisations and charities as well as corporate brands.  

I have also been fortunate enough to have sold prints directly from exhibitions of my own work and also had examples of my work published by both the online and printed news media as well as included in magazine articles.  I am a volunteer with the RNLI so have very privileged access to be able to shoot both my own home station lifeboat and crew as well as those from the neighbouring stations near my home in Essex and around the UK.

Please have a look through the online image galleries and if you feel you would like to contact me for an informal and no obligation chat about your potential needs then please use the email and phone numbers provided or just use the contact form and I'll come back to you directly.

Thanks for taking the time to look around.
