I studied Media at the Brits in Croydon/London where I studied Photography, Film & Television. Work experience gave me a great deal of exposure to the industry, where I learned quickly and made some valuable contacts. Luckily I landed a role as a runner with 'TV Travel Shop' when I left college and within 6 months I managed to get a promotion to researcher, soon after adding competition producer to my role. I then closed that chapter, with a view to work and train as a cameraman. I worked with a facilities company in Battersea for just over a year as a runner and trainee camera/sound operator as well as studio technician. My role within this position was exciting and allowed me to work on some really exciting productions! One of my most proudest acclaims was working on the Robbie Williams Documentary 'Nobody Someday', amongst various other productions such as 'Street Mate' and 'Ibiza Reps' to name a few. This company unfortunately went into liquidation, this was the catalyst behind my decision return home to Crawley, and work at becoming a stills photographer. I learnt traditionally in film and processed my own work when I first started out. I was also lucky enough to work for a portrait company which gave me solid training in portraiture, along with guidance and the opportunity to embrace the digital revolution. I worked for this particular company for 5 years and when the company when into administration I decided to take the plunge and go it alone. I opened my own shop/studio offering family portraits with a modern flare/style along with weddings and corporate work. That was over 5 years ago now.., and you find me today as keen as ever and ever appreciative that I can work within the field that I love allowing me to be creative & fulfil my passion...which is working with people, capturing their lives & passions.
