After three years at Leeds University studying Photography to a City and Guilds level , I began my career as a freelance Assistant around Leeds/Yorkshire. Working for studio based advertising photographers .
Soon after , I began working with top Landscape/Automotive photographer Graham Westmooreland , traveling the globe shooting for all the very best and Biggest clients in the world . Most of my time spent in The USA and Europe . Working on large big budget shoots , including -
IBM , Isuzu , Nissan , General Motors , BMW , Toyota , Superkings , Jaguar ,
I am currently working as a Freelance Photographer , mostly shooting on location . Taking the studio to the Client which saves them money and their valuable time . Not having a studio cuts the cost of the photoshoot bill by up to half- which is a huge selling point for some smaller clients . The commissions come from Hair salons , direct clients and Advertising/Design agencies . As can be seen from the contents of this site , my commissions are varied and can be of any size . The Images have been featured in magazines , billboards , corporate brochures , product brochures , flyers , websites , etc..
