Liverpool born and bred, I began my photography career hanging about the legendary Eric's Club; I soon started contributing to a popular local music fanzine - MerseySound. My photos eventually caught the eye of the UK music press and I became a professional photographer ! (more by luck than judgement). My work has appeared in Melody Maker, Sounds, NME, Smash Hits, The Face , Q , Uncut, Filter , Mojo and numerous music mags worldwide. Over the years I've done promo shots for most of Liverpools' alternative bands, with album and single covers for many artists including Black, The Icicle Works, The Fire and Western Promise. More recent additions include re-issue CD covers for The Wild Swans, A Certain Ratio , John Foxx and Thomas Dolby.... THAT was then...THIS is NOW !
