I started my photography journey as a landscape and coastal photographer, but since moving to Newmarket in 2016, it has unleashed a passion for equine photography. My Dad was born in the apartment above the old Kingsway cinema, so I have unconcsiously returned to my roots. You'll find me out in my flat cap and silver wellies most mornings capturing the fascinating and wonderful rhythm of the town. I love working in monochrome, but appreciate that some compositions are only fully realised in colour.
I'm an Associate of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS) lecturing and judging at camera clubs and societies throughout the UK. Put simply, I'm a complete photography geek – I live and breathe it, driving my partner Sian crazy, continually talking about taking 'snaps'.
My camera gear combines the Nikon D800 full frame kit and the Fuji X-T2 mirrorless system.
I have had my work featured in many national publications, including:
• Town & Country Magazine
• The Royal Photographic Society Journal
• Black & White Photography Magazine
• Digital Photography Enthusiast
• Cambridge Independent

My Equine work has been with the prestigious Palace House Heritage Centre and Rowley Mile Racecourse in Newmarket for a few years now, as well as with local independents such as Cortado's espresso bar and Strive for Design interiors in Newmarket and Balzano's cafe in Cambridge.
I work closely with the hugely successful Charlie Fellowes Racing as part of his extended team, photographing his horses fortnightly out on the gallops.
