Portrait Photographer in Bournemouth and Poole

I'm here to help

Thank you for visiting my website.  I'm a photographer and writer living in Dorset.

I prefer my work to be about you, but as you've landed on this 'about me' page, I'll take a minute to say a few things about myself.  Hopefully something resonates with you and we connect to tell your story together.

How it all began

In 2014 a young lady asked what I would do if I could do any job in the world.  My response was instantaneous.  I knew I had wanted to be a photographer ever since my Dad planted a seed in my early 20's by pointing out I had a good eye for a photo.

I married that 'young lady' in 2016, and you can see my Dad in my headshot portfolio.

My first love

After buying my first DSLR, I spent my early years photographing landscapes.  It appealed to the part of me that craves fresh mountain air, the freedom to roam wide open spaces and a fresh sea breeze.

However, I started to feel like something was missing.  landscape photography didn't feel like it had a deep enough meaning for me.  I still enjoy it, but it's more of a personal pursuit than a professional one.

Where next?

In mid 2018 I started to develop a keen interest in photographing people.  I'm fascinated by the stories they hold, the social issues that affect the world around us and the people in it.  So I turned my camera towards portrait photography. 

It's also a year where I inherited my Grandpa's film cameras and started using them to pursue street photography and photojournalism.  I have some ongoing projects that you're welcome to view on this website.

Final words

Photography isn't my only passion. I have a keen interest in many topics including writing, politics, sociology, marketing, tech, fitness & business. At the hub of all those topics is burning desire for lifelong learning. I like to write about those topics on my Medium (a social media platform for writers) and my personal blog.

Writing is also another service I offer.

I'm ready when you are...

Thank you for reading my story. Let me know when you're ready to tell yours.
