Thank you for visiting my website.
I am, maybe, a photo-classicist working with natural and subtle lighting. I engage sensitively and discreetly, and am used to a situation where you only get one shot at it. This can apply to theatre, commerce or sport.
Portraiture, a real pleasure for me, for the sitters professional use is difficult for most, so I help build confidence in the sitter and encourage them to relax, think about how they present to the world, and so share something of themselves.
I am passionate about photography, and all things photographic. Even original 1960s slide boxes!! My influences range from Larry Sultan to Vivian Meier. My secret vice is collecting photography books. Always happy to share that inspiration with sitters.
A Profile portrait session at my place is £150. A leisurely 90 minutes, pre shoot guidance and discussion around end use, choice of images, three images from shortlist for use across all media. Each image delivered at good for online file size. You can combine a family and profile shoot if you wish. Contact me for pricing. Beautiful mounted prints and larger file sizes available. For off-site contact me for pricing, travel is charged in addition to all pricing at 45p per mile. Travel over 1 hour or accommodation is charged depending on circumstances of the shoot. Family bookings are very welcome, Please contact me for pricing. For company and group bookings, I may need an assistant so again, priced according to circumstances.
I am often commissioned to photograph 'making' - of performance or material objects. The circumstances demand minimal intervention so its about working with what you have, in the moment it happens. It can be challenging to make visual sense of often messy environments with bad or frequently changing lighting conditions. Frequently time is of the essence and action cannot be restaged or staged. I love the fluidity of this kind of working. Do contact me with a brief outline of what you need as this work varies enormously. Thank you!
