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


My great passion in life has always been horses and as a youngster all I ever wanted was to be a 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 a cover 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 as thrilling for me as being at the races, and well, the rest, as they say, is history!


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 Acadamy, 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!, Generali, The Bookseller, Woman’s Realm, Dressage Magazine, Horse Magazine, Eventing, Christies, Knight Frank, Flora, The British Horse Society, Time Life, Western Morning News etc.


The most valuable lesson working with children and animals has taught me is patience and building a trusting rapport with my clients. I capture the emotions, feelings and personalities in those special moments naturally, without being obtrusive, and then I have the pleasure of translating it into a series of unforgettable images and something to cherish for a lifetime.


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 – I love to travel!
