British by birth, I spent my formative years flunking art school and immersing myself in graphic design in the North of England.
In 1997 I upped and left the security of my native land to begin anew in The Bahamas, launching a web design company, and heading up the creative side of web development for a large number of blue chip of clients throughout the region.
My journey into photography began in 2006, capturing moments of my daughter's life for posterity, and soon transitioned into a career as my work became seen around the island.
I have had the honour of being chosen as wedding photographer for brides and grooms from around the world who have chosen The Bahamas as their wedding destination.
My work has been featured in local exhibitions in The Bahamas, in print and online media around the world, and I have been contracted for commercial photography assignments for numerous business entities in the region.
Since 2007, I have also become involved with Ride For Hope, Bahamas Down Syndrome Association and BREEF, and make myself available as a photographer, and my web company available as a web design partner, for events created and run by these organizations.
As of August 2019, I will be returning to the UK to embark on another adventure in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, dividing my time between the sunny shores of the Bahama Islands, and the not-so-sunny streets of the North of England.
Some really useless additional information about me includes the following gems:
I can milk a goat and spent a significant part of my childhood hand-rearing piglets.
I'm a certified archery instructor, and provide an Explore Archery program for schools, along with lessons for adults.
I'm the best cook in our household.
I have two tattoos.
I love good cheeses.
When I was young, I really wanted to be Magnum, P.I. when I grew up. Or Batman.
Alongside a photo of my daughter, my studio desk is also home to a Funko Batman, Groot and Bumblebee.
