As you may already know I am a photographer based in Newquay, Cornwall, however I love to work across the UK and the world, from the remote beaches of the South West to the busy streets of London and wherever the work takes me.
I always had a fascination with photography and since an early age was found documenting holidays, birthdays and school functions with my camera. Despite not being my profession at the start of my working life photography and filmmaking was always a part of it. My photography and film hobby had me creating ski movies in the French Alps and New Zealand to documenting surf trips to Portugal and taking traditional film photographs of friends weddings, mountain trekking in the Alps or skateboarding in London.
Not finding the passion I craved from my work within the confines of a traditional office job in London, as I tried for a for a good few years, I picked up my rucksack and camera and left for the other side of the world. Thousands of photographs and 18 months later I found myself back in the UK and made the move from the South East down to Cornwall. I had spent summers, many weekend trips and holidays in Cornwall before, settling down in Newquay, Cornwall and dedicating my time to pursue a full time career as a professional photographer and filmmaker.
My focus now being on photographing people, whether that be in the guise of an in water surf photographer, fashion photographer or lifestyle photographer. I know now I have found my calling and am genuinely thrilled to call myself a photographer.
My passion project that runs alongside my work is taking Fine Art Photography of the waves and beaches that I am fortunate enough to spend time on, these are available and via my online gallery.
