Firstly, hello and welcome to my portfolio.
Photography started becoming my passion when I was bought a 35mm film camera by parents at the age of 11, following surgery to try and work out a heart condition diagnosis. We had a Kingfisher on our local pond at the time, so I spent evenings after school trying to photograph these elusive birds with just a 70mm lens - having then to wait for the film to wind on to the end and be processed and developed before I could see the small blue speck in the centre of a 6x4 print.
7 years on with an upgraded digital camera, lens and equipment, in 2012 I was shortlisted Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year and British Wildlife Photographer of the year, both with Kingfisher images.
I carried on photographing wildlife until I wanted to experiment further into different photographic genres. I bought some studio lights and asked friends if I could take images of their horses and dogs. The rest is history..
I was runner up in the Guild of Photographers "Equine image of the year" Category 2018 and I have a Qualified Status with the Guild of Photographers and a licentiateship with both Royal Photographic Society and National Photographic Society.
