about me

I was given a camera for my fifth birthday and that really instilled in me a love of photography, observing and trying to capture that perfect image- I’m still searching for that.

In my teenage years I explored developing and printing my own photographs, with the help of my Dad, these were all black and white images.

I trained as a structural engineer and really enjoy exploring the built environment and understanding how things fit together; and as someone who is interested in people and sociology I am fascinated by how we interact with each other and our environment

I use a Canon camera for most of my shots, but many street scenes are taken on my Nikon Coolpix 3000 or my iPhone. I try not to do much post processing instead preferring to keep things as I captured them on the day.

Let me know what you think of my pictures on my comments page.

Most of my images are available as prints or electronically. Do contact me if you would like to purchase any.
