I stumbled upon photographing portraiture after initially finding a passion for capturing the natural world where I lived in beautiful rural west Wales. At this time I was also honing my digital art skills in Photoshop and Corel Painter, just for fun. Not long after I had begun photographing portraits for pleasure my photographs were soon featured in publications around the world after being discovered on sites such as Deviant Art and Flickr.

I grew up near Birmingham and my photography has been heavily influenced from regular childhood visits to view the Pre Raphaelites at BMAG. I also love the Impressionists and Art Nouveau.

I never planned to be a photographer; it was an organic metamorphosis that happened to me in my late twenties. It has opened up a new way to connect with people and uncovered creativity previously untapped.

Creating beautiful portraits that capture the essence of a person, combined with meeting these people is what motivates me to be a photographer. Connecting with the sitter is what leads to a strong portrait. I spend a lot of time talking with my subjects and getting to know them.

I now work as a fine art stock image photographer, producing images that get used on book covers throughout the world, and alongside this I work as an actors headshot photographer here in Leamington Spa. I use a mixture of studio and location for my shoots.
