I've always loved to travel and this in turn led to an interest in photography. In mid 2008 on a 4 month trip around South America, armed only with a basic digital compact, this interest developed into something of an obsession and on my return I invested in my first DSLR. 

Each subsequent trip abroad then became a mission to achieve better and better shots that really did justice to the people, cultures and sights in a way that a simple snapshot couldn't.

Along the way I've refined my shooting style and approach, upgraded the camera and lenses and achieved success by winning a few competitions and having images and articles licensed or published.

More so than ever I get that buzz when exploring new places or stood behind a tripod doing long exposures of running water or the capturing the city lights at night.


My images have featured in magazines such as National Geographic Traveller UK, Wanderlust, Lonely Planet Traveller, Travel Bulletin, PhotoPlus, What Digital Camera, Practical Photography, Digital Photo, Amateur Photographer, CanonFoto (Germany), Professional Photographer as well as the online versions of UK newspapers; The Times, Telegraph, Express, Guardian, Independent and Metro and apps such as Insight Guides and Photography Weekly. They have also appeared in books and exhibitions as well as a number of websites, blogs, newsletters and corporate publications.

All the images on my website are available to license. You can find a small selection on Getty Images or you can get in touch via email or social media pages.
