We live in exciting times and it is a genuine thrill to create a unique vision for my clients through clean lines, an enthusiastic use of one point perspective and a cinematic style that has won numerous awards including Best in Category twice at the AOP Awards London and 2nd Place in the IPA Awards in New York.

Inspired as a small boy watching air force jets flying ultra low over the family home I gained a pilots licence before I could drive a car. After a brief flirtation with a military flying career I moved in a radically different direction and instead attended University of Westminster in London to study professional photography. A module on Kubrick’s 2001 A Space Odyssey changed my entire perspective.

I now specialise in capturing the forces of technology in our ever changing world.

We are living through the fastest, most radical transformation in society where robotics, AI, autonomy, cutting edge architecture and even spaceflight are touching the lives of millions every day. My clients ask me to depict these complex technologies through carefully crafted stills, motion and CGI productions.

Over the past few years I have been directing short commercial films and TV commercials and am now expanding my showreel into VR and AR.  My recent short for Leica Camera on the manufacturing of the M10 camera went viral and has now attracted over half a million views in total.

I travel globally to get the job done – whether it’s a half day shoot for myself and an assistant in the City of London or a weeks shoot with a crew of ten in Asia, every one of us is a passionate perfectionist who never forgets that work is also supposed to be fun.

I am now dividing my time between London and New York.

I am also a Non-Executive Director of the Association of Photographers in London.

Particular areas of specialisation:

Tech industries, automotive manufacturing, aerospace, urban landscape, aerial photography and filming.

Clients : Akzo Nobel, Barclays Bank, BMW, Breitling, Conde Nast, Ferrari, Four Seasons, Google, Havas, Inmarsat, Jetcraft, KLM, Leica Camera, London Gatwick Airport, Shell Lubricants, Thales Aerospace, Thoughtworks, Toshiba, Porsche, Rapha, Rolls Royce, Virgin Galactic, 3M

I carbon offset 100% of my CO2 emissions from my global travel.
