staffordshire, england 

I’m based in Staffordshire with a long time passion for live music, festivals, events and documentary - anything where raw emotion shines through and you can tell a story about it. I have a particular love for jazz and smaller, local, ‘honest’ festivals - especially if they promote the bands and artists of tomorrow.

I photograph and review gigs and live events (you can find my thoughts and musings in my blog) and I’ve provided images to Manchester Jazz festival, Rock at Night Magazine, Fujilove Magazine, JCB Charitable Foundation, Lichfield Fuse Festival, Cyprus Avenue, Cork Jazz Festival and the Archdioceses of Birmingham and Westminster to name but a few - even though it doesn’t do to name drop !

Oh and if it’s important to you… I’m a confirmed Fujifilm addict because of their size, quality and simplicity in use. I use X-T3’s with the 23mm f2, 50mm f2, 16-55mm f2.8 and 50-140mm f2.8 - which pretty much covers me for anything and everything. 


There you go, all you need to know - hopefully - but if it isn't enough then get in touch and I'll fill in the blanks.
