I live in Maldon in Essex and have been passionate about photography since childhood. I love everything about it; the anticipation of the shoot, the shoot itself and creating the final images in post production.
I have always been a great fan of Nikon equipment and used their film cameras for many years. I finally moved to digital in 2005.
In September 2008, I held a month long solo exhibition at the Gallery in Chelmsford Central Library. I received some very positive feedback and this inspired me to have some of the exhibits placed in a local shop for sale as limited edition framed prints.
Until June 2022 I was using a Nikon D850 professional DSLR and Nikon pro lenses which are amazing. However, I decided the time was right to go Mirrorless. I finally received the new flagship Z9 mirrorless camera and five new lenses in July 2022 after a wait of more than eight months and am very much enjoying using them.
In 2022 I had a picture published as "photo of the week" in the Essex Chronicle and also a different one published in "Digital Camera" magazine.
In 2023, I plan to do more model photoshoots as it's been a while since I have done one. I will be buying some more flash equipment to explore the world of off camera flash for the first time which should add a new dimension to the images. I also want to expand the range of subjects I shoot including action and sports and I hope to produce a 2024 fashion calendar.
Exciting times ahead.......
