I am a Devon based International Photographer specialising in Wedding, Portraiture, Equine and Country Lifestyle photography. As a highly published magazine photographer my regular clients include: Country Life, Horse & Hound, The Field, Shooting Times & Country and The Sunday Express S magazines.

I never expected to be able to make a career out of photography as my greatest passion in life had always been horses and as a youngster all I ever wanted was to be a jump jockey. Sadly I grew up to be 6′ 4″! Not to be defeated, I started to photograph horses instead, only to discover that I was really rather good at it, and before long I had an  image (Desert Orchid) on the front page of The Daily Telegraph and my career as a photographer truly took off. Soon after, I became a retained photographer for the well known “horsey bible”, Horse & Hound magazine photographing top equine events all over Europe. Along the way, I began to photograph people as well as horses and discovered I quite liked them too. Then I photographed a friend’s wedding which was so thrilling for me and well, the rest, as they say, is history!

My style and approach is simple, bold, classic, true and one of my greatest skills is in my ability to mix with everyone and to get nervous subjects to relax in front of my camera.

I have been lucky enough to be a photographer for over 15 years and to have worked with some top organisations including: The Daily Telegraph, The Independent, The Daily Mail, I.L.P.H, B.F.S.S, Discovery Network, The Jockey Club, The Royal Academy, The Cornish Guardian, Cornwall Today, Trevose Golf Club, Golf World, Golf International, Golf Monthly, Fowey Hall Hotel, Gulf Horse, Arcturus Publishing, The Sun, The Guardian, The Field, Country Life, Horse and Hound, Horse & Rider, Racing Post, Ford Motors, Random House Books, CountryWeek, Pet Plan, Shelter,OK!, Assicurazioni Generali, The Bookseller, Woman’s Realm, Dressage Magazine, Horse Magazine, Eventing, Christies, Knight Frank, Flora, The British Horse Society, Time Life, Manor Magazine, Western Morning News etc.

So whether working in a muddy field, a sun kissed Cornish beach or at Royal Ascot, around the UK or internationally, I generate wedding, lifestyle and editorial portraits of the highest quality. My expertise and relaxed competence combined with my creative instinct make me one of the United Kingdom’s most sought after wedding, portrait and equine photographers.

I undertake commissions for various photographic projects including creative portraits, editorial portraits, headshots, slice of life documentary for families, events and fine art.

All destinations are welcome as I love to travel!
