Working on location at home, abroad, or in a hired studio, my style of photography is all about storytelling. Whether your project requires just a one hour session, or anything up to a year or more to complete, I aim to create for you a modern lyrical masterpiece! With professionalism and charm, my work will reach you in style, casting subjects in a brand new light. If a project is too much for one to handle, I can rely on the help of my trusted team of assistants; and with a full range of quality photographic equipment at my disposal, no project is too large or small.

Final artwork is presented in the format of your choice, including prints in any size employing a wide variety of quality surfaces, bindings and finishes. Framing can be arranged, and digital files for the web or printing yourself are provided. I can also have archive shots fully restored. This is particularly useful if I am producing a special book showing before & after scenarios. Presentation cases or stands can be supplied.
For the technically discerning, I use a wide range of equipment based on two main brands, Nikon & Leica. This includes a Nikon D800 (with a range of lenses from 10.5 mm fisheye to 70-300mm zoom) and Leica: M6 for film and M9 for digital (with a range of lenses from 15mm super wide angle, the legendary F1.0 50mm Noctilux and the 135mm F2.8.) Flash equipment used includes on camera Nikon, off camera quantum and Elinchrom studio lights with a range of diffusers and reflectors. Photographs are processed on a bespoke Windows 10 PC with 6GB of Ram and 6TB of RAID storage. Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop are the main software with Portrait Professional and Perfect Portrait 8 plug-ins. I use a range of Studios rented as necessary, in Fulham and throughout London to match a client’s needs and budget. It works particularly well if I bring studio lighting to my client’s home or workplace, where they are most at ease and surrounded by their possessions.
