My career started back in the 80's while working in the newspaper industry.
I have worked with clients over the years helping their marketing strategies by utilising traditional skills to create a unique approach to the marketplace, using the modern tools of technology.
My career started soon after I left Art College back in 1978. I spent the following three years working for the then Evening News covering all sorts of news, crime, sports and fashion features. I photographed everything from firemen striking and the Iranian Embassy siege to the Sex Pistol’s and a young Lady Diana Spencer while teaching at her kindergarten school. This led to recognition by an international photographic agency called Rex Features and I joined them as one of their first Royal Photo Correspondents.
I spent the next eight year’s photographing every member of the Royal Family from the Duke of Kent to Her Majesty the Queen, officially and unofficially, regularly travelling on Royal Tours all over Europe, the Far East, China, Australia and The Americas. I had countless publications in every UK newspaper from The Sun to The Sunday Times.
When Hello magazine started up I was one of the first UK photographers to work for them, doing Royal Tours and Celebrity at home lifestyle shoots. This led to a regular contract with You Magazine, shooting celebrities and fashions for the best part of the next ten years.
I also helped with the fledgling Comic Relief Charity and shot countless promotion and publicity stills for their comedy films for ten years. I shot all the pictures in their 1997 book ‘Balls to Africa’ about a celebrity football tour of African countries, with Angus Deayton, Frank Skinner and Nick Hancock, which the charity used to raise funds and awareness.
Since 1998 I have concentrated on hairdressing photography and filmmaking, organising the filming of all TIGI educational videos and shows. I also lead the video and film production team at the Bed Head Studios.
