About me

I grew up on an estate in Gloucestershire so was fortunate to be involved in fieldsports from an early age. With the river Wye on the doorstep, being surrounded by shoots of all different shapes and sizes and the ability to follow hounds nearby almost every day of the week should you wish to, I had no shortage of inspiration and started taking photographs from an early age. 

I started taking photographs professionally in the mountain bike industry as a teenager. I then moved back into the world of farming and fieldsports in 2012. I still really enjoy photographing other subjects but I now tend to concentrate on fieldsports. I have gained many years experience photographing numerous days shooting, stalking, hunting and fishing up and down the country, as well as abroad. I moved to the Scottish Highlands in 2017 so now base my work from Ballindalloch, Banffshire, though I also still enjoy traveling for work throughout the UK and abroad.

As a photographer who has grown up involved in fieldsports I understand the traditions, etiquette and sometimes private nature that surround these days. I provide bespoke photography packages to encapsulate your day's sport. Whether it be capturing that moment you hit your highest bird or you caught your first salmon, I am there in a discreet manner to capture the drama as it unfolds.

I also now have a drone and hope to be able to provide clients with aerial photography in future.

Please don't hesitate to contact me if you would like to discuss your day.
