From Manifesto 24.1 Trees

I am a photographer based in Cambridge, UK. I work with businesses on corporate portraiture, PR and product images, mostly for corporate communications briefs. My clients extend from start ups to quoted companies, charities, consultancies and educational institutions. In addition, I pursue some personal projects. These are mostly series of portraits but also include more esoteric subjects as well a small series of black and white traditional photographs.

I have currently working on a project titled Manifesto 24, which is itself made up of a number of series of smaller projects, each of which comprises 24 photographs on a particular theme. The first of these, Manifesto 24.1 Trees is complete with a selection of prints currently on show at Summerhall in Edinburgh.

I have an ongoing project, “Significant Shoes – Women and their Stories.” Not unsurprisingly, these are portraits of women with their significant shoes. There are more details here.

In 2008 the Fitzwilliam Museum, Cambridge hosted a series of my portraits titled “On the Shoulders of Giants.” These were environmental portraits shot throughout the University of Cambridge and the Colleges as part of the celebrations of the 800th anniversary of the University’s foundation. This was the first ever photographic exhibition hosted by the Fitzwilliam.
