About

I have roots in North Yorkshire and Scotland, but spend most of my time behind the viewfinder of a camera or the wheel of a car. Being a photographer has taken me across the globe – from the Maasai Mara to Hollywood, The Vatican to The Gorbals. Along the way I’ve met royals, prime ministers, murderers, addicts, and a whole host of interesting characters.

My style is versatile, but I pride myself on combining reportage realism with studio lighting on any location. I can work quickly and think creatively on the spot, but never sacrifice attention to detail. Versatility as a virtue. I’ve been making real life look cinematic since 2002.

As well as my work with The Times newspaper, I shoot with high-profile brands, creating imagery that drives powerful campaigns and captivates audiences.

I am a fully qualified drone pilot. There are very few photographic problems I can’t solve. I can also write about myself in the third person.
