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.


Want your photographs immediately? We can attend an event, provide studio backgrounds and lighting and print photographs [6" x 4" / 7" x 5" or A4] on the day in folders, mounts, frames or on their own. Interested? Then contact us with details of the event for a quote.


Having a special event, tournament or presentation evening? Why not have it recorded in photographs and turned into a booklet. In partnership with publishers and printers we can do this. The publishers can also allocate an ISBN number to allow the booklet to be sold commercially if you wish. The printers print on demand so you never have excess, expensive stock. Interested? Please Contact Us to discuss requirements and pricing.


IMPORTANT UPDATE: For a number of years I supplied images through the agency Demotix. In January 2016 they were bought by Unity Glory International, a Chinese visual communications and new media business. As a result of this both the Demotix and associated CORBIS agencies have closed.

Images and merchandise are sold through a variety of sites depending upon their usage.

Three of my panoramas were exhibited in the Autumn show which ran from 15 October 2016 to 18 December 2016
Three of my square canvasses were exhibited in the Summer Exhibition which ran from 23 July to 4 September.

In November 2016 I covered Le Gruyère European Curling Championships and photographs are on sale through Alamy.

Three steps forward, two back! A printer who was going to supply a quote for printing the clock faces failed to do so but I think I have now found a printer who can and will supply at a sensible price. The first batch of clock mechanisms have arrived and the first couple of clocks are on test.

New Product
Whilst restricted by injury I looked at producing square, wrapped round images and a selection of these are available as canvasses, see left. As the main image is circular I am working to use this as clock faces. More news to follow as this progresses.

Injury Time

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.
