Before the advent of digital many people got in to photography with a simple 35mm compact camera, for me it was a present from my parents and it started a life-long love affair with the ‘still’ image.

Over time I progressed from a compact camera to a SLR (Minolta Dynax 7xi) as my skills developed. It was still a hobby for me at that time and it wasn’t till 2001 that I started working part-time as a professional photographer whilst still working as a software/graphics developer.

It wasn’t long before I went full-time and now I have the pleasure of travelling around photographing people at events up and down the UK.
