I work mainly in the areas of sports and news photography but do work in other areas both as a freelance selling commercially through agencies and also by commission.
I hold Public Liability insurance for 5m.


During the current Coronavirus pandemic I am covering limited news stories for agencies as well as building up stock photographs. With no sport taking place most of my normal work has been wiped out and I appreciate many are in the same position with their work. So in this time of potential hardship I am happy to make the following concessions:

  • if you have an unpaid invoice please pay it if you can - many thanks to those who have
  • If you are paying please do not pay by cheque unless absolutely necessary as I would prefer not to visit the bank. I can accept card payments over the phone, bank transfers or payments via PayPal
  • if you cannot pay please let me know and I will extend the credit period until you can pay
  • I will not be taking action to recover unpaid debts until further notice

Please stay safe, follow the guidelines and I look forward to an eventual return to normality.

Stay Alert --> Control the Virus --> Save Lives



     In November 2020 new regulations come into operation for commercial drone operations. By
     then, if all goes to plan, I will have my qualifications to allow me to operate commercially.
     Currently I have qualified for a Flyer-id and have registered and have an Operator-id with the
     CAA to allow me to fly a drone non commercially and gain experience ready for November.

Whitley Warriors Yearbooks

For a variety of reasons I did not have the time to publish the yearbooks for the last two seasons that I photographed Whitley Warriors, a project I have always wanted to complete.

Now, five years late, I have been able to set aside the time needed for this. At the time of writing, 28 May, 2013/14 is complete and 2014/15 is near completion with the intention being to get them to the printers in June.

This will be a limited print run as I have no idea how much interest there will be so long after the seasons finished. They are A4, 32 pages full colour as were the others and contain results, photographs and the odd fact, although the gamesheets for 2014/15 still do not contain full netminders statistics so these are incomplete.

Cost is expected to be around 7.50 plus P&P and I am happy to take advance orders to give me an idea of how many I need to print.

In 2014 the club celebrated their 150th anniversary. Durham CCC played Warwickshire CCC in a one day cup match and I created a panorama of the ground. A 7ft x 2ft canvas now hangs above their bar and it was used on the cover of their anniversary book.
