About top-pic photography and video production
I am a Freelance photographer based on the Essex and Suffolk border in the United KIngdom. I have been interested in photography for many years and love the many wondrous opportunities that come my way.
I undertake all photography assignments worldwide, I do not photograph any specific genre, this enables me to choose a wide range of subjects to capture.
I have been fortunate to travel to many parts of the world including Zanzibar, Costa Rica, New Zealand, Canada, Mexico, Cuba, United States, France, Germany, Italy, Holland, Norway, Denmark, Finland, Sweden and Russia. Of course London and the United Kingdom have also been on my itinerary on many occasions.
I have also been fortunate to cover live music events in Trafalgar Square, London, the catwalk at London Fashion Week, Polo in Hurlingham Park and other live events such as the annual Carnaval in Sitges, Spain.
I have covered music festivals in Essex covering bands such as Status Quo, Heaven 17, The Real Thing and musicians such as Midge Ure, Ray Lewis (The Drifters) and many others.
Wildlife photography brings its own experience and I will never forget my visit to Costa Rica and Nicaragua in 2016, the latter giving me the chance to get very close to an active volcano. In 2017 I travelled to Zanzibar and encountered an entirely different culture to the UK. I also travelled to New Zealand in 2017 and the view of Lake Wakitipu is truly amazing. I rounded off that trip with a return journey via Vancouver.
Closer to home of course there are always portrait opportunities and I also support a local all inclusive drama group - The Habbit Factory in Hornchurch - by providing photographic services for their programmes and productions.
I have also undertaken some video work for The Habbit Factory.
