By no means do I want you to think that I know it all, far from it. In this photography tips section, there is over 30 years experience on general photography, Photoshop and many other areas.

It seems like I have done my fair share of research over the years. From reading magazines, going to seminars and more importantly from hands on experience. Everything else from first apprenticeship at 16 to photographing Princess Ann exclusively. Weddings to pet portraits and from passports to large magazine editorials.

More recently I have worked with the BBC, Channel 4, a superb team from Pinewood Studios and many local businesses. For the past few years, I've been working with drones as a qualified UAV pilot filming on some fantastic jobs. I will be adding a new section on aerial photography and cinematography soon so be sure to bookmark us.

Now with the internet and this website along with my offline business, well...my wife and children hardly see me.
