I am a self-taught photographic artist. I have spent many years developing digital techniques that search out the magic in the reality of the everyday. My tools are anything that I can find that enhances the images. I use everything from film cameras to digital cameras, to the phone in your pocket. 


As well as the images you see here, I have also completed many commissions for album covers and book covers. My live music photography is used by national magazines and my portfolios have been used to help gain musicians and bands live work, and press articles.


Despite travelling all over Europe collecting images and searching for inspiration I find as much magic in the realism where I live – east of the land, west of the sea – in Amble, in the beautiful county of Northumberland.
