BIO

Salar de Uyuni Salt Pan in the Andes, Argentina

Dakar Rally 2017

I've often wondered if the bronze tinge in my eyebrows is the result of the hours spent as a kid in my dad's dark room peering over the top of the intoxicating fixing bath, as he developed prints under the red safe light.

 
For him it remained a passion, for me it became my profession.


I honed my craft as a photographic assistant for close on 5 years, before venturing into freelance photography, specialising at first in fashion & people, later also in cars and adventure photography. By some coordinated luck my stills evolved into moving images and today I work as much in film as in stills.

The work has taken me to all the continents bar Antarctica and allowed me to film and photograph in extreme places like the slopes of that unpronounceable "Eyafyekayukl"  volcano in Iceland and Diego Ramirez island in the southern ocean.

I've had the privilege of working with some amazing people in amazing places, but career highlights are shooting at Cape Horn during a third lap of the planet with the Volvo Ocean Race and charging across South America covering the Dakar Rally a few times.

Although born a Brit, I spent a large majority of my life in Africa until I  returned to the mother land where I'm currently based.
