From a young age I was told to "do the job that you are passionate about". For me, that was always photography and I've been photographing ever since buying my first camera at the age of thirteen.  
I began assisting local photographers from a young age and throughout my photography studies at  York college. I then moved on to achieve a BA with Honours in photography at the University of Derby, whilst working as a freelance photographer and assistant in my free time. Whilst studying I maintained that passion, finding new ways to improve and learn. 
I'm now based in Bradford-on-Avon in Wiltshire, and work as a photographer for Future, an international publishing company as an in house photographer, as well as completing freelance projects.
On a day-to-day basis I get the privilege to work with a wide range of clients, photographing actor's headshots, family portraits, corporate headshots, and providing high quality photography for parties, weddings, and business events.
I strongly believe photography should always be personal, and helps people connect with one another. Whether it is a portrait capturing a time of joy, or a product connecting people with an interest, photography should always be personal. 
If you would like any more information on how I can help you, or just want to ask some questions, please don't hesitate to contact me by email or phone.
