Welcome

I always knew I had a passion for photography. It's my own personal expressive art, a passion. Since picking up my first Sony a390 camera I knew this is what I wanted to do in my life. Since studying photography at the University of Northampton in 2014 my work has gone from strength to strength.

As well as having a passion for art, I have always had a passion for sport photography and so during my studies and beyond have made every effort to pursue this passion. Now working as a sports photographer, I am not only looking at the action on the field but what is happening in my surroundings to help document the event. I do enjoy the photojournalistic side of sports as well as the creative street style imagery I can create before the main event itself.

From this, I have been able to develop as a photographer not only within sports but from location portraiture  to music, utilising the surrounding lighting in order to capture my subjects as well as the use of artificial light in a studio.

Photography is a creative art form which I am still exploring today through practice and constantly pushing myself and my camera.
