About Me

Whilst working in management, predominantly in technology associated environments, the creative arts had always been a passion in my spare time. Having my first camera at the age of six, photography has been part of my life ever since. Over the years, it has become more than a hobby, and the transition to professional photographer has been a natural progression.

Convalescing, following illness, I took the opportunity to revue my career to have a more creative element in my work. Returning to University (I was originally a mathematics student many moons ago), I completed a BA (Hons) degree in Computer Animation. Not as niche as it may appear, studying 3D visualisation, animation, film making techniques, graphic design and more. The field of ‘Creative Technology’ could have been made for me!
All the time juggling my freelance work with my studies, I followed with an MSc in Digital Media to broaden my skills. This was the final step, covering web design, audio processing, interactive media, film making technology and so much more.
Since graduating with a distinction, I have continued as a freelance photographer, videographer, web designer and multimedia producer.

I also have experience in education, as a web developer with the University of Portsmouth. Developing an interactive eLearning website, using advanced web technologies, was challenging and rewarding.

Another lifelong passion is music, both listening and playing. Although music is something that occupies my spare time, once again, this is something that merges into my professional work. Music video production is an obvious area, where my technical expertise combines with my knowledge of, and empathy for, music.
When producing video in other areas (for example, weddings), audio quality is very important to me, and being able to draw on my knowledge of audio processing is invaluable.

My experience provides me with a mature and broad understanding of the needs of my clients. Whether you are private individuals or a corporate concern, you can expect a high standard of professionalism and quality service, with a relaxed and friendly approach.
