I am fortunate, I have spent my whole life pursuing my passion. Not many people can say that even at the age of 12 they were already engaged with an activity that would be their life’s interest but also their profession.
In the last 20 years I have seen my business as a photographer change and mutate in ways I might never have thought possible. The range of work I now undertake has slimmed down to the commercial, I no longer do weddings except for family, nor do I take family portraits. My work is exclusively for business, organisations and the University and the colleges so important to Oxford.
I photograph people, products, events and services. My pictures are used in brochures, college prospectuses, magazines, newspapers and of course on the web. My portraits are in college halls sharing space with oil paintings of past masters and the famous. I work with images describing and advertising and promoting the services and products of my many clients. I have photographed the Queen 4 times for different colleges, most of the royal family, presidents and ministers. I am regular in many colleges but have probably photographed in all Oxford colleges since I became a photographer.
My skills are consummate in that I have experience in most areas of photography, I have done it all before and know how to get the best from any situation or person.
I said I have been lucky to pursue my passion and that is true, it drives my desire to get the best that I can from my camera for my clients, it continues to challenge me to improve and to learn the new techniques that digital offers.
