So what do you need to know?... I’m originally from Belfast and have been working as a commercial portrait and lifestyle photographer in the UK for over decade now. I’ve two kids, both boys. the eldest is 10 years older than his brother and I’m so proud of both lads. I try to spend my time away from shoots with the family enjoying life in Hertfordshire.
I get a real enjoyment from producing images, the creative in me gets very excited. I don’t snap everything I see on a daily basis as I like to keep little things like that for me. I believe that I take beautiful and well crafted images that tell stories and show people if the best light.
I like a laugh on set and take everything as it comes, never too stressed but extremely hard working to get the shot. Amanda Holden said that I was her new favourite photographer after a recent shoot, not to my face but I’ll take it on a reported comment. I’ve worked with a number of high profile celebrities and even getting a laugh out of Damon Albarn.
