With an early childhood spent in Nigeria I grew up with travel in my blood.
I am a largely self taught photographer and film maker with over 20 years professional experience. I started my working life as a commercial Oceanographer having graduated with a degree in Ocean Sciences but then In 1994, having spent several years working abroad followed by a stint with an Oceanographic survey company in the UK, I decided it was time to follow my passion and concentrate on photography. Now 22 years later I'm fortunate to still be working as a photographer and more recently as an award winning film maker.
In addition to working as a photographer I continue to work occasionally as a freelance oceanographer managing surveys across the worlds oceans, often in some of the most challenging locations and environments. Variety is good in everything we do.
With clients ranging from the charitable to corporate sectors I have worked in many varied and remote locations around the world as well as domestic work here in the UK - at the last count I had worked and traveled in just over 100 countries across all continents with the exception of Antarctica. My passion is looking into the lives of others - photography gives me reason and the tools to do this.
In 2011 my short film "Reflections on sixty" was the winner in category at the Kendal Mountain Festival.
I often undertake personal projects both at home and abroad - some of which can be seen in the "journeys" section of this site.
