I practice in many different types or genres of photography and have never restricted myself to having one area of expertise.

I have experience photographing a vast range of subjects and situations and have worked as a freelance photographer with companies such as Sky News,

The Financial TImes and National Theatre Scotland.


Over the years I have captured many special moments in a style that is unique and separates its self from any other.  This inimitable style is not produced through hours of studying and training, but from feeling and passion.  As a documentary wedding photographer, I watch for moments unfolding and do not stage them.  This means that every wedding is completely matchless and won't be found anywhere else, not even on Pinterest.

  • Photojournalism

    As a freelance photojournalist, I am happy to undertake any type of news broadcasts or publications and ensure that I work to tight schedule in order to deliver photographs as quickly and efficiently as possible.

  • Commercial/PR

    If you are looking to add images to your work or personal portfolio, then this is the place to come.  I have photographed many different portfolio subjects for many different reasons; from musicians and dancers to album covers and job interviews.

  • Portrait

    Everybody wants good quality family pictures that can be hung up on the wall - including me.  I have photographed hundreds of children and families and I'm not scared of making a fool of myself in order to get grumpy children to smile for the camera.

Still Life

Sometimes it's quite nice  to spend time photographing something still - I find it very therapeutic.
