I originally started out as a graphic designer specialising in publishing specifically designing magazines. As the publishing industry has shrunk over the years and the need for freelance designers has become less relevant I have concentrated more on photography and video. Photographing and filming events throughout the UK and into europe. Working as a graphic designer for so many years has given me an advantage as I understand how the content I create will be used in print and online.
I'm a qualified drone operator keeping up to date with the latest technology, software and techniques. Most recently working on creating images for virtual reality which can be seen in my portfolio.
I have a real passion for sculpture and I'm very lucky to live near one of the best places in the world to see it, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. When I not busy working on magazines or out on a shoot I can usually be found wondering around photographing sculpture of some sort. I have a website where I try to collect it all together at www.theartaroundus.co.uk but time is short and there's bills to pay 😊...

Below is a book I published with photographs of the amazing architectural details of the historic building around Leeds. I hope to improving on this by writing more about the buildings and history.
