Looking for Opportunites to Develop My Portfolio

I am looking to develop my skills and build a portfolio, so am offering (potentially voluntarily) photography services to the local community, including charities, clubs, companies and individuals.
The majority of my photography experience to date is wildlife, street and landscape focused, but I have also conducted family and friends portrait photo sessions. I will consider all opportunities, including but not limited to:

  • Sports
  • Events
  • Locations
  • Portraits (e.g. family)
  • Pets
  • Fashion

All photographs will be provided in return for use in my portfolio; some images may also be displayed on my website and social media pages. I am looking to obtain references for future use, so testimonials will be greatly appreciated.
Please note that as I work full time all requests have to be fitted around my often busy work schedule; the majority of my availability will be evenings or weekends.

You can view my images on by navigating through my website or follow me on social media (links to social media below).
Please get in touch using the Contact Me page if you would like to discuss any possible opportunities.

Wales Rally GB 2016

Back in October I was lucky to attend the Alwen and Brenig stages of the 2016 Wales Rally GB event. It was an overcast day in the forests of North Wales which made it difficult to photograph the fast moving cars. Although, I managed to get a few good shots throughout the day which can been seen below.


I will shortly be making the images below avalible to purchase as prints or digital image files.


Interested in attending next year? More information on the Wales Rally GB can be found here:


Where it all started...

A photograph of Wyver Farm sig.
Wyver Farm Sign Photograph

Back in 2013, I entered into a competition for a local newspaper in Derbyshire. The brief of the competition was;


'We want to see pictures which get to the heart of what the Belper area is all about, in your opinion. We want you to show us how beautiful the town and surrounding villages really are. It could be the history behind the mills, the community spirit which brings the Strutts Centre to life, or a fun event in the River Garden.'


I entered a number of photographs, but it was my Wyver Farm sign that won me third place in the competition. Links to two articles featuring my photographs can be found below.
