I am extremely fortunate to travel the world on my assignments, capturing imagery for top international fashion, lifestyle, sport and advertising brands. I have made two BBC documentaries, with indus films, at Everest base camp-spending 9 weeks there each time. Capturing the life and incidents that occur at an emergency hospital set up for the season. “Everest ER”. I have been involved in working with charities capturing the imagery needed to tell the stories of the people, animals and countries that need our help.

I am fascinated and inspired by the natural world that surrounds us and its preservation. I am an ambassador for 4Ocean, The Ocean Foundation and Save wild tigers. The need to explore more extreme locations and fresh challenges. My work has taken me to the stark grandeur of Everest, Siberia, the slums of India, the barren beauty of Iceland, the fragile state of Zimbabwe, the mesmerising landscapes and wildlife of Namibia to the Oceans of Hawaii and the Seychelles. Resulting in a unique portfolio and the ambition to achieve ever better results.

I combine stills and video to produce uniquely stylish imagery for all media content. Finding new paths and pushing boundaries in my work. Lauded by the British journal of photographers and Association of photographers award winner. “The essence of photography is capturing a moment in time” In the click of the shutter time stands still, telling a story without end.
