A Manchester based professional photographer, specialising in the field of gig, festivals and event photography hailing from Manchester in the North West, however shooting across UK providing rich photographic media.

I specialise in many fields - including the gigs, festivals, events, corporate and wedding photography.

In relation to certifications and qualifications, I am part of the Nikon Professional scheme. I obtained A levels at the highest grades in the study of Photography, although a few years back now I may add!

I always need to pinch myself and remember the amazing people and companies I have had the privilege of making content for.

I have worked with bands and solo artists during tour and commissioned events such as Lady Gaga (covering just under ten of her UK tour dates for Live Nation), McBusted (covering nine of their UK tours dates), Bad Company (covering nine of their UK tour dates), Joe & Caspar (covering five of their UK tour dates).
