How did you become a photographer?
In 1994 I was working for an accountant and thought F*** this for a life, bought a camera, self taught and forced my way into shooting football matches then worked for various press agencies.How did you get into shooting headshots specifically?
I worked very closely with many celebrities on ‘set up paparazzi style’ photo shoots before they were common, yes I would like to say I was one of the first photographers to work this way in the late 90s. I become friendly with Kym Marsh and before she auditioned for Coronation Street she asked for a quick headshot, which we shot in her living room !Where do you shoot?
I shoot in Bow, East London but looking to move into a new studio in Bethnal Green very shortlyHow would you define your style?
Simple, clean, and effective that focuses on the actor and after shooting for 7 years in Hollywood I combine a small piece of the USA with a large piece of the UK

I love meeting people, I love ‘chewing the phat’ as we shoot and generally enjoying my time with the actor. It’s more of a social event for me !

Like many I would say sitting in front of the computer dealing with social media, unfortunately it is a must in 2017.
