I'm a photographer for hire based in Yorkshire and happy to work anywhere in the UK.
I take pictures of people, places, premises, products, pets and projects.
Let me know if I can help you.
Maybe you have a special family occasion coming up and you'd like a group shot of the whole family as a gift. Or maybe you need headshots, whether corporate shots for your employees or promotional photos if you're in the acting profession. Perhaps you just want a photo of yourself looking amazing.
There are lots of reasons why you might want a professionally-taken portrait of some kind, and I can help here.
Whether it's a simple headshot, a formal portrait or an informal pose that perfectly captures your personality, I take pride in making sure you look the best possible version of you.
You can have a traditional portrait, or we can collaborate on something more bespoke that really shows off your uniqueness.
And mustn't forget dogs. I love to photograph dogs.
A picture is worth a thousand words. Why tell someone what your business does when you can show them?
You could be looking for images for promotional materials such as a website or direct marketing, or maybe you have a one-off event that you think the press might be interested in.
I can shoot your products for catalogues or ecommerce use, I can take pictures of your premises if you're open to the public, I can take photos of your team if it's a service business and your people are your greatest asset.
Get your business ahead of the competition by showing your products, services and people at their very best.
Have you ever got to the end of a satisfying task, whether on your own or as part of a team, and thought – I wish I'd had photos taken as we were going along?
Whether it's a short-term activity like organising an event, or a longer term initiative such as a construction project, or setting up a new organisation in the community, I love to record people's stories and help them record their memories for posterity.
Perhaps you'd like something to be captured before it disappears; perhaps you're part of an organisation that's going through some change; perhaps you're an amateur dramatic troupe and you think it'd be cool for someone to capture your rehearsals.
Whatever your story is, if you want someone to record your journey – I'd love to be able to do that for you.
and I live in Pickering, North Yorkshire with a wife and two dogs. After a couple of decades in corporate life I fell in love with photography to the point where I decided to make it my living. I'm studying for an arts degree in photography and bring something of that art background knowledge to the work I do for clients.
I love to make photographs that please people, that make them smile, that mean something, that succeed at their intention, and that ultimately make me and the client proud.
