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. From January 2021 photographs and video are also available from drones. See the AERIAL section for full details.

I hold Public Liability insurance for for both traditional and drone photography.


Since the lockdown was imposed in March 2020 I have not chased payments for jobs completed prior to that date as I appreciate that some customers were suffering hardship. Now that we are approaching the tax year end I will be sending out reminders for outstanding invoices.

However I appreciate that not everything is back to normal and some businesses are still not fully open so I am still willing to make the following concessions until April:

  • if you have an unpaid invoice please pay it if you can - many thanks to those who have
  • Payments can be made by card over the phone, bank transfer or via PayPal
  • if you cannot pay please let me know and I will extend the credit period

Please stay safe, follow the guidelines and I look forward to an eventual return to normality.

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.
