I’ve been a professional photographer for over twenty years. Here is a taste of what I’ve done in that time and examples of what I currently do. Nowadays my professional photography involves work with organizations, designers, artists and other creatives but, in essence, I’m responsible for producing high resolution imagery and the careful handling of valuable objects.
My own art is high resolution, hyperreal botanical photography, creating studies and compositions from plants and flowers, inspired by classical painting and botanical illustration. I sell limited edition prints through my website, at art fairs and via galleries and agents in the UK and abroad. My images have been used in magazines, advertising, music artwork and by Apple Inc.
RHS Gold Medal winner for botanical photography.
Work exhibited worldwide, recent shows in New York, London, Stockholm and South Korea.
Botanical photography course tutor at the V&A, London and West Dean College, Sussex.
Graphic Design/Book Publishing
I’ve done a number of projects with Fuel Publishing. We travelled to Russia, Germany and the USA to photograph collections of rare antique chess sets for the book Masterworks.
For a number of years I’ve worked with Jo Gordon, knitwear designer, on studio fashion model shoots and still life product photography.
In my South London studio I provide high resolution documentation of artwork including paintings, sculpture, ceramics and jewellery. I am also able to shoot artwork at artists’ studios and galleries. Here are two examples:
I’ve worked with Modernshows, photographing twentieth century furniture, antiques, collectibles, lighting, ceramics and jewellery. My images were used in the book 100 Midcentury Chairs.
I’ve photographed beauty and fashion products for Sunday Times Style Magazine, The Sunday Times Magazine and Luxx Magazine. Recently I’ve worked with Petra Boase on her range of art prints, stationary, cards and decorations.
I’ve worked for newspapers and magazines (The Observer, The Sunday Times, The Independent, The Scotsman, NME, Vox, Wired), television companies (BBC, Channel Four, Channel 5), advertising and marketing (JWT, Grey, Saatchi & Saatchi, Drum), arts organisations (Artangel), record companies (Arcana), design groups (Loewy, The Design Portfolio) and numerous other businesses and institutions (Liberty, RHS, Getty Images).
I’m always interested and happy to discuss new projects and commissioned work. Here are my details:
