Based in Andalucia, Spain and in the City of Brighton and Hove, England, I am a photographer with an independent eye and vision that brings a slightly unconventional method and results to my picture making. With a passion for high calibre monochrome film, I rarely work with digital cameras, and still prefer the original methods for printing, using skilled professionals in the printing field to help me realise the visions I see when making an image. I am equally comfortable working with colour.

Growing up in west London during the early punk era, and with very strong connections to the area still, has instilled an urban grit to my work that I thoroughly enjoy, trying to connect with the people I am photographing, revealing something new, and I hope that my own humanity shines through too.  As well as people, I enjoy the very natural elements in the amazing world around us, and have produced a series of seafront images in Brighton that can be purchased here online, and have been somewhat blessed to live in this lovely old decaying City of Brighton, with the south downs on our doorstep.
