How did you become a photographer?

By accident.  I was a pro musician. Got drunk after a recording session and bought a camera

How did you get into shooting headshots specifically?

Necessity. I was beauty photographer way back and a recession hit business hard. I had taken pictures of Hugh Grant and Liz Hurley and thought actors need pictures taken. Let's have a go.

Where do you shoot?

Historically big studios, but now in the comfort of my own home using daylight and mixed lighting.

How would you define your style?

What style? I have shot all of them over the years. Nowdays honest and gritty.
