About

I was drawn to photography at a young age, but my early work was nothing to write home about. I'd fill up Kodak disposables with awkwardly framed textures and flash-illuminated living rooms and my parents would always be a bit hesitant to get anything developed.

I took a break for several years returning in my late teens to pick up Nikon's latest entry level offering and re-immerse myself in the world of photography. This set me on quite an obsessive path, I think there may have been less than three months between acquiring my trusty digital Nikon and finding myself in the basement of Manchester University's Student Union splashing around chemicals in a Darkroom. 

I found, and still find, the medium by which the images are taken to be a creative part of the photographic process. In this digital age there are still situations where film has advantages, and the gap between exposure and development enforces a more methodical, measured approach to capturing images. There's an analog nuance digital just can't provide, and I'd much rather do something in-camera than attempt to replicate it in photoshop.

On this site you'll find an eclectic range of images taken by me: some film, some digital, some colour, some black and white.

What ever the medium and whatever the subject I hope you enjoy them.
