I’ve been taking photographs now for probably nearly 15 years. Photography is something I will never grow tired of, because of the multitude of genres, there is always something else to look at or try.
My first memorable experience with a camera was when I went on a camping holiday with my parents, driving to the South of France. I can remember pointing the camera out of the car window and clicking shots of random scenes. Waiting for the photos to arrive in the post afterwards was an anxious experience, would there be anything on the film? What moments could I freeze in time? I still get the same buzz waiting to view my images today.
I shoot with both digital and film cameras now-a-days and always have a camera of some sort on me wherever I go. Photography has become a way of life for me and most definitely not just a 9-5 job. I like to keep my work and personal photography varied, this keeps me inspired and driven to always better myself.
I started offering photography tuition around 2008, when someone asked me at an exhibition I was having whether I knew anyone who offered it. I explained that perhaps I could help and offered them the first 1-2-1 workshop! After this first training session the client was really happy that they got to learn what they needed to know and I got a tremendous buzz from seeing them enjoy getting to grips with their camera and photography. I was hooked!
Since then I have co-run a local photography training firm called Nova Photography and I now offer photography courses on my own.
I have been published in printed magazines, online magazines and collaboration projects:
I live in Crowborough with my wife, two young children, two cats and two dogs! We enjoy exploring the Sussex countryside and also holidaying around the UK and cycling.
