Extra information:

Based in Nottinghamshire, UK, I specialise in the representation of Town & Country life, documenting rural activities from traditional equine competitions & field sports to agricultural shows, as well as press events & location observations. My work has been used by the BBC, Trinity Mirror PLC, Government Agencies & luxury brands.

As an active correspondent, I have over 30 feature articles and accompanying stills printed by several publishers including Metropolis, TI Media, ATG Media, Pen & Sword Books, Baily's and Scale Modelling Now.

Please feel free to contact me. I only work to either NUJ or self-set rates. Combined Photo and word commissions will be charged at my rate, not yours. In some cases expenses will also be charged.
