About

 

I was born and raised in London, England, and now live in Brisbane Australia. I went through Art College in England and studied fine art before doing photography. I have had various exhibitions along the way. I have an exhibition once a year at Maud Gallery, Brisbane, Australia. I have many collections. Several of my collections are with The Designer Boys who are based in Sydney. I have taken 43 years to create these collections, which are varied but all photographic. I just love photography and I have worked in the advertising world for over 40 years, and in this time I have slowly been shooting my own work. I read and research before I start a new project, which can include everything from still life, botanical, pop art, landscapes to J W Waterhouse the Pre-Raphaelite painter. The inspiration just seems to flow, not every project works, but when it does it’s very rewarding. My works sell worldwide, and that in itself is so satisfying knowing someone else likes your work! Along the way, I have picked up most of the coveted international and national awards around, including; Cannes, One Show, D&AD, Clio, AWARD and BADC. I was also named 123rd best advertising photographer in the world in 2014. I have shot campaigns for just about every British and Australian booze and banking institutions you can think of including; Smirnoff, Hennessey, Moet, Gordon’s, Guinness, Boddingtons, Holsten,  Beenleigh Rum, Tetleys, Strongbow, Carlsberg, Bundaberg, Great Northern, Kellogg, Silk Cut, Lloyds, Midland, NAB, Nat West, Barclays. I have also shot for the likes of Cadbury’s, The Times Newspaper, Nokia, Liberty Store, Sainsbury, Tesco, plus many more, inc recently a campaign for Coke China. In the end I have always enjoyed shooting my own work, and I continue to do so.
