My desire to view the world through the lens started in December 2008 after I saw Slipknot at Manchester Arena. That was where I decided to teach myself how to use the Canon 450D and 17-55mm f2.8 lens I bought with my savings. It may not have been flawless, but it allowed me to get my feet wet before I jumped in at the deep end.
Since then, my work has been published in a variety of places. From the pages of Team Rock triplet Metal Hammer, Prog and Classic Rock, through several front covers of Drummer Magazine to a whole host of websites. I've also worked with brands such as Ticketmaster Blog, Orange Amps, Rebel Mic Stands, models for Ed Stone Rockwear and Devilhorn, and countless bands for photo shoots and ‘behind the scenes’ footage. In 2015, I was made one of three official photographers for Bloodstock Festival, where I capture the madness both offstage and onstage through the lens.
I am fully dedicated to my art, and addicted to high quality. My goal is to deliver the absolute best. I’ve had some hair-raising weather experiences, and shot photos precariously balanced on whatever was handy. I’ve run myself ragged between festival stages to ensure I catch as many of those special moments during a band’s set, both onstage and in the crowd. And, of course, I have edited all of these shots until the midnight oil’s run out and the sun’s peeked through the window, driven by a combination of tea and willpower.
I've worked on a variety of projects over the years, ranging from photo shoots, concerts, behind the scenes and other personal projects such as portraiture. I treat every opportunity to use my skills as an honour, and I've had the pleasure of working with amazing people. If you want to be one of them, get in touch
