Where to Find Me

Based in Charlbury Oxfordshire England on the edge of the Cotswolds. I am a Photographer covering weddings, parties, festivals and events in the Cotswolds and beyond.

How I got Started

 In 1976 I got my first camera, a Kodak 'Brownie' Vecta (a hand me down), from then on I was Totally hooked on photography. On my 18th Birthday I was given an Olympus OM10 35mm S.L.R. which was my faithful companion for 20 or so years. Over time I gathered more lens, camera bodies and equipment but more importantly lots of experience, photographing weddings, parties and the local landscape.

    Then in 2003 I went digital. I bought a small digital compact, being reluctant to give up my 35mm film. After a few months it became clear to me that digital was the future (but I still kept my film cameras including my little Vecta) so I decided to buy a digital S.L.R. I finally settled on a Cannon EOS 400D. A nice little camera with the versatility of a larger S.L.R. From then on I never looked back.

Over the years I have built a huge portfolio which you can view on flickr , 500px or YouPic.
