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 here & now, capturing the beauty of the everyday, a sense of place and 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 was born in Dorset, spent my formative years in Glastonbury, Somerset and I now live in a village just outside Marlborough, Wiltshire with my beautiful wife and fluffy cat.
I shoot both digital and film formats (yes film is still very much alive!) - the former using cameras Fujifilm XH-1 or X-T3, and the latter a Yashica LM TLR, a 35mm Olympus OM2n or my favourite - the Bronica SQ-A, a medium format beast! I am also discovering the joy of pinhole photography and use an Ondu 6x9 Classic. Check out my new YouTube channel showcasing all things pinhole!
I am a self-taught enthusiast and have been learning, experimenting and building a portfolio since 2015.
Influences in my life are American street photographers Vivian Maier and Garry Winogrand. Documentary photographers, Diane Arbus and Jill Freedman. English photographers; Jane Bown, Martin Parr, Don Mucullin, London based Dorothy Bohm & local photographer & mentor Howard Maryon-Davis. The biggest influence is however the environment in which we live.
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.
