Thank you for taking the time to look at my website.

From a foundation in photojournalism, I have slowly migrated into portraiture. 

The aim of my work has always been the same, that each person has a story of their own to tell – and it is my role to record it – in the short privileged time I have to spend with them.

Portraiture of people and the landscape involves taking the familiar and relooking at it, and enabling a different view of the world to be seen by others.   

I hope that you enjoy the work that I have done over the years –  and the new work too!

Best wishes
