Originally from London, I have been based in western France with my family for the last 20 years.
Since my arrival in Nantes, I have earned my professional living from corporate and editorial assignments, as well as shooting weddings in a documentary style.
In parallel with these commissions, I have pursued my personal street photography projects, leading to several exhibitions of these pictures at art festivals in Nantes. Since 2010 I have also had the pleasure of passing on my craft to local enthusiasts for the organisation Commeunphotographe, and have over the past 5 years developed my own made-to measure Workshops for amateurs and professionals alike, in France and other cities across Europe.
I have also been privileged to teach photography to Graphic Design students for over a decade and this experience, coming into contact with a young generation of creatives, with their own visual language and tools of communication, has increased my understanding of the role of photography today.
My interest in photographic culture and the Arts in general are an essential part of my make-up. I’m an avid collector of books and magazines, visitor of exhibitions, and follow trends on social media. My formal university background gave me the skills and curiosity to write about my experiences, and I enjoy the pleasure of sharing these thoughts on my Blog.
