I am a Professional Photographer and teacher of photography working in the London and Essex areas of the UK. I graduated with an honours degree in Photography in 2000. Over the years I’ve worked for many clients, turning my hand to many genres. I’ve exhibited much of my Art around the UK and have had my work published in many national papers and magazines.

I am now fortunate enough to be able to take on commissions that interest me and complete my own personal work due to my other passion which is the teaching of photography. My success in this field has led me to start this company, ‘The School of Photography’, where I teach people all over the world the art and science of this beautiful craft. I also train school teachers in the UK to deliver key aspects of the GCSE and A Level Photography curriculum though the creative arts company Great Oaks Education.
