Hi there!  I’m a freelance photographer who specialises in helping business to show the best version of themselves.  From creating that all-important first impression, to showing your customers what’s great about your product or service.  It’s about telling your story and, ultimately, why customers need to buy from you.

I’ve worked throughout the UK with some incredibly talented people, from small family producers to large nationals.  The projects have been varied but I’ve always had the same objective: to create photography that connects with their target audiences and works hard for their business.

My clients have used my images in adverts, magazine features, books and digital media to connect with their audience, share their brand values and grow their business.

I have developed a workflow that enables me to work collaboratively on set with stylists and art directors, or work remotely with clients from my studio in Staffordshire.  I don’t like to over complicate things and love minimalism, but I carry a range of modern, contemporary props, backgrounds and textures for when the time calls, often making items to specifically for a shoot.

We only get one chance to make a first impression. What do you want yours to say?
