Born in Woolwich, London

Lives & works in Colwyn Bay, North Wales.

Currently studying a foundation degree in photography.

Music is my first love, with photography a close second.  I've been composing, recording and performing all my adult life.  A bass player by trade, I also composed music for TV programmes for 16 years for such clients as BBC, ITV, Discovery and Nat Geo, so I also play guitars, keys, and orchestrate.

 

For me, there's nothing quite like the energy, excitement, atmosphere and drama of a live performance.  As a performing musician, these are the moments that make it all worthwhile.  As a photographer, these are the moments I'm always striving to capture; I find looking at musicians through my viewfinder and capturing them in the throes of their passion is the next best thing to actually getting up on stage myself.

Outside of music, I'm a sucker for a sunset, hence the 'sunset & dusk' collection.  I also love travelling when I can get the chance, and taking candid shots of people.  If something has visual merit, I will shoot it.
