I have been experimenting with distorted images and a selection of these have been made available as square prints in assorted sizes and formats, see galleries for details of sizes, prices and formats.
Three of them have been accepted by Palace Art Gallery in Redcar for their Summer Exhibition which runs from 23 July to 4 September 2016. During the exhibition these will not be sold via this web site but will be marked "currently available from Palace Arts Gallery, 01642 296515"


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.

Palace Art Gallery, Redcar
Three of my square canvasses have been accepted for the Summer Exhibition which runs from 23 July to 4 September.

Three steps foward, 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 without battery covers and the company has admitted they don't supply them. I am looking for another supplier

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
14 June : Back in April I tore my calf muscle whilst covering a race in Hamsterley Woods. After 6 weeks on crutches and a couple excercising I am now back to working.

First Class Cricket
My ECB accreditation has been renewed for the 2016 season so I will once again be covering First Class and International cricket

A new venture after being approached by a German company who produce calendars. I am currently looking at my archive material and creating calendars to sell through them.

Mixed Start to 2016
Good news is that I am now the holder of a Press Pass issued by a member of the UKPCA, the bad news is that one of the agencies I supply has been bought and is no longer operating.

ICE HOCKEY 2015 / 2016
After photographing Whitley Warriors since 2008 it is time to step aside for the coming season. The time taken up by this commitment has meant other jobs have been eitherv refused or delayed and I have decided that, with the time commitment required for the Rugby World cup to concentrate on these other jobs.

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.
