I am an editorial and commercial photographer working in London. I do most of my work for the Press Association as well as shifts at the FT and have at one time or another done work for almost all of the major PR agencies in London.
I was born in the Midlands in 1983 and have been a press photographer in various guises for over a decade. It all started when half way through my A-Levels I realised that sitting inside and writing things down wasn't for me. So with the blind enthusiasm that only a teenager can manage I decided I would try and make a living out of something I loved. Having gone for work experience at the Express and Star, I got my first front page and was hooked. On their recommendation I went to study press photography at the NCTJ in Sheffield, breeding ground of generations of great photographers, and me.
My first job was on a local paper in North Wales called The Evening Leader covering news, features and sport with a degree of editorial freedom that proved an ideal training ground. After a couple of years though London called and I won the first bursary to Newscast a city based photographic agency. In 2005 armed with a set of kit and national paper coverage I went it alone, since then I have worked for various people including The London Paper, FT and PA. Beyond that I think it best that my pictures do the talking for me.
