Based in Barnard Castle, Teesdale, Co. Durham in the North East of England, I have been passionate about taking photographs for well over 40 years. Like many people these days, all of my work is now digital using professional grade Nikon cameras and lenses to ensure the best possible image in all conditions. As part of my workflow to achieve the maximum quality, all pictures are taken in a RAW format and processed on fully colour managed equipment before printing. Printing is carried out using the latest pigment inks for the Giclée process on acid free substrates to get maximum image longevity. (Further details on ink / colour longevity can be obtained from Wilhelm Imaging Research).
When on a commission, I will always have at least two cameras, spare lenses and ancillaries with me to avoid any equipment malfunction preventing me from taking the images required for my client.
I also have full Professional Indemnity and Public Liability insurances and for peace of mind when working with youths or vulnerable people, I maintain enhanced Criminal Records Bureau disclosure - these documents can be shown on request.
I hold an Associateship Distinction from the Royal Photographic Society and have had images selected for their Annual International Digital Image exhibition. I also hold an Associate Distinction from the Society of International Nature and Wildlife Photographers and I am a full member of the Society of Wedding and Portrait Photographers.
I look forward to hearing from you and seeing how we can work together.
