I have always been fascinated by portraiture because in their way they begin to tell us a story or about an experience. This is what drives my photography.
Today everyone can take a portrait from the smartphone in their pocket. Selfies give us instant satisfaction and are valuable for their immediacy in recording a moment. But they are limited by the technical nature of the smartphone in terms of light and composition. My portraits are more staged, constructed and have more attention to details such as light and expression. They are the opposite of the selfie genre.
Portraiture is my escape, a place where I feel at peace. Beyond the capture process is a connection with someone, be that someone I know or a relative stranger.
I live in the Midlands, UK and I am always open to private commissions.
