I am a freelance photographer located on the Essex/Suffolk border in the United Kingdom.

I have had a long standing interest in the art of photography although the advent of digital media spurred this interest into a passion about twenty years ago.

On my site you will find a selection of the thousands of photographs I take each year. I take photograohs covering many different genre -

MUSIC - festival photography has given me the oportunity to enjoy many international artistes including George Ezra, Stereophonics, Lana Del Rey, Marc Almond, Toyah, Heaven17, Status Quo, Squeeze and in the words of the televsion adverts of days gone by "many more". These events can be quite challenging especially with ever changing lighting sets and obstacles such as microphone stands to encounter.

These challenges can be overcome, for example with a difficult lighting set up it's often beneficial to convert the image to monochrome which can result in an image which is more dramatic and effective than the original.

SPORTS - I cover many events such as BOXING, FOOTBALL, POLO, MOTOX, HORSE RACING etc. These provide their own challenge with most sports being fast moving and the aim to get the one action shot that's going to stand out. A sporting event such as a football match lasting ninety minutes can have 2,000 images on the memory card but no more than 20-30 of any interest and often less than ten that make the grade.

TRAVEL - this type of photography is less difficult than MUSIC or SPORT due to the static nature and mostly any photos
