I am a freelance photographer based in and around Cardiff, South Wales.
I bought my first DSLR in 2007 and have learned about photography every day since. I am obsessed with my personal growth in the subject and never leave a camera at home.
I am turning my hobby into a business currently and can offer quotes on services required. I have a passion for live music, documentary, wildlife, zoo and macro photography, but I can turn my hand to event and even motorsport photography as well.
I sincerely love capturing the atmosphere of any event and the personality of my subjects.
This makes me extremely versatile in my field.
I've had a great year in regards to media response from The Telegraph, including entry into pictures of the year 2011, as well as appearing in the BBC pictures of the day and pictures of the week several times.
My stories detail some of my competition wins and the such.
I love the challenge of pushing myself to get shots that stand out, and I'm at my best under circumstances when there's crowds or people with better equipment. This makes me push all the more for a unique perspective.
I've covered my first wedding and I'll very almost certainly be covering more this year.
If you are interested in me covering your wedding or event, please let me know.
I am available for second shooter work on Saturdays, Sundays evenings, and maybe occasional weekdays with enough notice.
I was lucky enough to win Amatuer photographer of the year for Autosport International in January 2012, and my shot is shown here ( http://500px.com/photo/3222317 )
