Sir David Attenborough visits. I was commissioned to document the whole day. He spent the morning with local school children, and was incredible. Full of enthusiasm, including everyone in his talks, even the photographer.

Sir David moved easily between formal discussions with VIPs, entertaining students and listening to palaeontologists. I find these pictures the hardest:you have to get it right first time.

There was planning involved with this. I brought the pink jacket, to contrast with the rape. And the figure is standing on a step ladder! The grey sky was an unexpected extra.

From a personal set of images concentrating on the translucence and texture of the inflatables. I love the chance element of working amongst the public

The brief was: Wild swimming, womanhood, joyful and bright, for the cover of a poetry book. It is always great to get such an open job, a chance to try things out.

Taken in my studio for a photo realist artist. The resulting painting is a gift to his wife of her favourite object!!

From a range of products, all depicting seaweed prints that the artist harvests and prints herself. I documented them all for the website.

This was to illustrate a sacred singing course. The leader did NOT want an image of singers or music as that would be too prescriptive of what to expect.

From a personal project of people holding hands. As someone who is very non-physical it intrigues me that one could want to be contacting another person and feel relaxed. An on-going project, taken in many locations these 3 are all from at festivals.

These young people were looking forward to New Years Eve, and kept hoping something would materialise for them to go to. But, being in a small, rural town, it didnt! So they agreed to come on a photoshoot for the sake of something to do.

A lock down image. Spring 2020 was of course a good time for messing about. And our pond was full of newts.

A large part of my paid photography is depicting holiday properties. For each place I do a mixture of wide, whole room shots, and tighter lifestyle images.

A portrait of a young couple, taken just before setting off on thier gap year travels. I was asked to make the portrait in anticipation that they would return as slightly changed, and more experienced people.

I was asked to produce a set of pictures of winter swimmers to be on the walls of a coastal restaurant. The photographs had to epitomise the experience of bathing in the cold sea, local to restaurant.

The river runs directly through the town, in some parts behind and even under buildings. We went on an exploration at that time when we all had to stay at home.

Experienced freelance photographer, with studio. My capability means I can take on a range of commissions, as well as working on personal projects.

The medium of photography continually fascinates me. Extracting a moment from the flow of time and putting a frame around it can create a whole new story, implications, mood, possibly with little resemblance to the original instance.

I enjoy experiencing the qualities of light that being a photographer keeps you in tune with.

It is gratifying to work with others, producing images that promote their ideas and business’. The vitality expands in a team, with the resulting photographs being pushed further on from the initial concept.
