After a promising start in music photography in the late 90's after studying photography and filmmaking, I found myself being drawn to the music world. Starting out working on live events with acts such as Coldplay, Idlewild, and The Stereophonics whilst with the BBC. I later moved on to engineering and producing, working with such diverse acts as, Million Dead (Frank Turner), Orange Goblin, Johnny Truant, and 3 Colours Red. This led into A&R work for the studios in house label, signing 2 of the labels most successful bands Hondo Maclean and Funeral for a Friend, the latter were then licenced to Warner/Atlantic and became one of Britain's biggest rock bands.
It was whilst working with Scarlet Page on a Kerrang photo shoot for one of the labels acts that I started to realise that I needed to get back to my first love.
And that brings us to today where I am a commercial portrait photographer and video director working with talented artists and companies including The Joy Formidable, Atlantic Records,Escape Artist Management, Buzz Magazine, Mythophonic Management, Alchemist (as seen on Dragon's Den), National Theatre of Wales, Michael Sheen, Wild works and Lilygreen&Maguire, Believe Revolt Records, Raw Power Management, Zestone Records and The People The Poet to name a few.
The years working in the music industry have given me a unique perspective of what is needed to promote artists and forge lasting working relationships with artists, musicians and actors alike. I am available for work internationally, if you would like to book please email or call so we can talk about your project.
