I am a freelance photographer providing studio and location photographs for agency, editorial, corporate clients and more.
I have been taking photographs professionally for eleven years. During this time I have been on a journey to discover the artist within. I have always had a passion for creating original photographs that come from my own visions and ideas. I want to push my own limits as a photographer and push my clients limits, giving them an experience they will never forget whilst making them feel good about themselves.
I have been fortunate to travel the world taking photographs and teaching other photographers. I want to help people understand that it is O.K to be an individual in this world.
Photography gives me a reason, a purpose and a great excuse to do the things I want to do in life, it has lead me to amazing places and introduced me to some amazing people.
The limitless nature of photography drives me, like a drug, it is an addiction I can’t quit, it’s endless possibilities mean I can never get bored, never reach the top, it’s always evolving and opening my mind.
My goal is to not only succeed as a photographer but as a person, if I can help people by making them look good whilst giving them a good experience I am very happy.


I am based in South Wales U.K but I also travel the world. This website hosts a selection of my favourite work & commissions.

Due to the nature of my work, I can’t always answer my phone. The best form of contact is via email, I’ll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours. I love travelling and consider commissions anywhere in the world!

Qualifications:

In 2012 I achieved a Fellowship qualification with the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers. “At this standard, you can expect images that not only display a high degree of technical ability, but also portray imagination and creativity in execution and presentation. These are important factors that often go hand in hand with higher prices as this qualification is held by the top 1% of practitioners, who coincidentally are often impressive image makers and astute businessmen.”

In January 2015 I was awarded ‘Master of the Society’ with the Society of Wedding and Portrait photographers. This is an award given for long term help within the photography industry. Over the years I have been very active supplying Magazine articles, Seminars, workshops, competition judging, mentoring and qualification judging.

During my college years I achieved a National Diploma in Photography and Digital Imaging. I later went on to study in University but felt it wasn’t for me so decided to concentrate on physical practice and began working in a high street studio.
