I love taking photos and it's as simple as that.
I can picture the image in my head, look through the lens and make it happen. It makes me shiver with excitement.
I'm lucky enough to be based in the beautiful English Lake District, where my young family and I run a guest house - and when I'm not taking photos or cooking up breakfast, you'll probably find me working for Impact International - officially one of the best employers in the UK.
When it comes to photography I'm largely self-taught - but I hope that won't put you off. If you like qualifications then you might be reassured by my First Class Honours degree in Art History at St.Andrews University. The more I think about it, the more sure I am that my 4 years of study there have had a profound influence on my composition, eye for detail and careful balancing of colour and form.
I am an active member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers and International Commercial and Industrial Photographers and and my work was recognised in the recent official Canon EOS Excellence awards. My commercial work has been widely published both locally, nationally and internationally.
I'd love to capture something special for you - whether it's your wedding day, kids, dog, products, venues....you can be sure I'll be filled with enthusiasm to do the best job I can and to provide you with images to be proud of.
