I'm a self taught photographer and from 1976 I've been interested in documenting my life adventures in photographs. I bought my first DSLR in 2009 a D60, did my first photoshoot in June 2010, slowly increasing my collection of lenses and bought a Nikon D300s in Jan 2012. I love photographing live shows - portraiture and everything in-between. Upgraded to full frame Nikon D3s in 2015, plus a Nikon D750 in 2017 and I'm now shooting with two full frame cameras and all Nikon lenses.

I was Editor-In-Chief with online music magazine Mudkiss Fanzine, from 2008 - 2013, which also involved me occasionally, interviewing and reviewing live shows, plus being the chief photographer. I decided to finish the site to concentrate on photographer, my true love. I am now head of photography at Louder Than War, and a House photographer at O2 Ritz, Manchester.
