As a photographer I like to work at the edge of light and dark, at the extremes of lighting, pushing what is possible with a camera.
Having formally studied photography and graduating with a an Honours Degree, I have worked for various  imaging companies.
 I established my own fine art photography business in 2004.

My inspirations come from an early age, my dad used to be a Manchester black cab driver. I would often go out with him as a child, just observing the people and architecture.
It was only later when I started working in photography that I realised what an impact this time spent viewing Manchester from this perspective had on my work.

I don’t look for the perfect sunrise or sunset, as in music, songs that touch us deeper have a minor chord.
