Welcome to my portfolio of documentary & Street photography, which like life is a constant work in progress! It's all about being present in the moment, capturing the beauty of the everyday, a sense of place & time & the atmosphere of the event or occasion. Whether the photographs are of people, lifestyles, urban or rural environments, it is observational storytelling, un-staged & without a posed appearance.
I am a self-taught enthusiast photographer & have been learning, experimenting & building a portfolio since 2015. I live in Bedale, a market town in the Yorkshire Dales with my beautiful wife & our naughty fluffy cat Gigi.
I shoot both digital & film formats - the former using Fujifilm X-T3, X-T30ii & X-100T cameras, the latter in medium format a Bronica SQ-A and Yashica LM and in 35mm an Olympus OM2n. My pinhole camera is a walnut creation by ONDU and check out my YouTube channel for videos on my pinhole photography.
Influences are American street photographers Vivian Maier & Garry Winogrand. Documentary photographers, Diane Arbus & Jill Freedman. English photographers; Jane Bown, Martin Parr, Don Mucullin, London based Dorothy Bohm & photographer & mentor Howard Maryon-Davis.
If you are hosting an event, sporting or social, a party or even a protest & would like me to capture the scene & record the moments for participants, guests &/or hosts alike please get in touch.
All the photographs are available to purchase; information is available upon request.
