I worked as a graphic designer in design and advertising agencies as well TV for many years before making the transition into photography.
I have commissioned photographers and art directed photo shoots, both studio-based and on location. This gave me the experience and knowledge to understand what it takes to produce images at the highest level.
I was given my first camera at the age of 11, a second hand Zorki 4k rangefinder, and after a while started to develop my own black and white film and print my own shot. Now, although I sometimes still shoot on film, for my own pleasure, I mostly rely on my two full frame digital cameras.
I am a keen sportsman having competed in many triathlons, road races and mountain bike races, I have bought photos of my self at these events and know how important it is to be in the right place at the right time to capture the best shots possible.
