I completed my City & Guilds in photography in 2007, majoring on black and white imaging and secured distinctions in all modules.
I had two of my images, 'Man and Boy' and 'Winter Grazing' chosen for the Joe Cornish workshop exhibition held in 2007, at the Joe Cornish gallery in Northallerton.
2013 has opened up new opportunities following my career change from civil servant to full time photographer and driving instructor. I have already undertaken portrait commissions as well as a product shoot at Windstruments music shop in Crossflatts. Over the summer I had the privilege of photographing their annual summer school held at Ashville College in Harrogate. I met several internationally acclaimed musicians as well as many gifted students attending to further their hobby or potential careers.
