About Me

I have been taking photographs since I went traveling in early 2002 to Asia and Australasia.
Since then I have been very passionate about photography and have been very active in learning and improving my abilities.
I attended the Sheffield college to do an OCN in Professional Photography to improve my overall technique and understanding of photography.
This gave me a good taste but I wanted to take it further so I undertook a foundation degree in photography to further my knowledge,
ability and understanding and finished with a distinction.
After this I continued on to Sheffield Hallam University to complete my degree gaining a 2:1 with honors.
I'm interested in all types of photography from travel/landscape to extreme sports,to people and social photography.
I think this is mainly because I love traveling and being in the outdoors especially in the mountains,
or near the sea, and it's these things that inspire me.
I enjoy photographing people and capturing the fun and emotions at different evens and occasions, from live music to weddings.
Outside of photography I'm a very keen mountain biker, climber and snowboarder.
I have been snowboarding for 16 years and have spent time in France, Spain, and 2 winter seasons in New Zealand.
My love of rock climbing, mainly bouldering and sport climbing,
and has taken me all over the world from the UK to Thailand, Spain, France, Australia and NZ.
