I have been a professional photographer since 1995 after graduating from the University of East Anglia with a Honours degree in Environmental Sciences. I was part of the award-winning team behind the UEA's student newspaper, Concrete, whose members you will find, if you look hard enough, occupying some of the best jobs in the media.
I was incredibly lucky in getting my first break in the industry and joined a news picture agency in Norwich shortly before graduating. I needed a day off to don my hired gown and mortar board.
I learned a lot, very quickly, working alongside some excellent photographers, colleagues, competitors and staff photographers from both local and national papers. After eleven months I joined the ranks of those staff photographers and moved across the Fine City to Norwich's Evening News.
During my time there I was twice winner of the Eastern Region Sports Photograph of the Year competition.
Eight years later, in 2004, changes at Archant Norfolk (as Eastern Counties Newspapers had rebranded itself) meant that I put my hand in the air when redundancy was offered. That suited me as big changes, in the way of fatherhood, were coming my way. I have been freelance since September 2004 and I have established a wide variety of clients from public, private and voluntary sectors for public relations, corporate and commercial work. I also undertake commissioned editorial work.
I cover Norwich, Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire, Lincolnshire, London and my home county of Essex.
Or wherever you'd care to send me.
