Hi :)

I've been photographing since I was a child, but began to take it more seriously after discovering street photography and realising it's possible to create a fascinating photograph by just freezing a fraction of a second of normal everyday life.

I like to photograph unposed spontaneous moments, whether that be on a street or at a gig. I love finding unexpected scenes in unpredictable situations, and enjoy the challenge of being able to react and capture those moments.

I've used a variety of film and digital cameras, from a 1955 Rolleiflex medium format to a £1 charity shop 35mm camera, and from DSLR to mirrorless to mobile phone. My pictures are also on Instagram and Flickr.
