If you would like to know more about me as a commercial photographer then please read on.....

I am a registered photographer with Northumbria University and have worked on numerous projects with their design department. I've had surf, snowboarding, fashion and advertising photos published and am looking to gain more experience in any field of photography. I've been involved with shoots for One North East and Drummond Central as well as other region wide campaigns including the successful North East Says No to the Regional Assembly campaign. I took the image which featured on the cover of the June 08 Accent magazine, as well as shooting images for a four page clothes feature inside. I often work with models to help them build their portfolios, and have a roster of people that i can call on to do specific jobs for advertising or marketing briefs. I photographed the Northumbria University Design department end of year exhibition for the last three years, as well as photographing their 2009 Civic Centre & 2010 Baltic Fashion show (published nationally) and also their highly prestigious Graduate Fashion Week show at Earls Court in London. I've shot interiors of numerous rental properties and other houses for estate agencies, and have also performed this service for hotels such as the Fallen Angel Hotel in Durham. In January 2010 i gained national exposure with some snowboarding images appearing on Ski Sunday, as well as in the Times, numerous other online publications and as a cover shot and two page spread in the Journal. In 2010 i've shot several weddings and been working on a wide range of photography projects including the first advertising campaigns for Jewellery maker Pranella Jewellery and also the first product, action and lifestyle images for Juice Kiteboards.
