My photographic journey started whilst at Sixth Form College in 2001/2002 when I produced video diaries of my work experience at a local nature reserve. After leaving Sixth Form and the need to progress towards a chosen career I applied and was accepted to attend Riseholme College.  It was whilst at Riseholme I began to concentrate more on still images which I incorporated into my assignments which also contributed into gaining the top grade in all my coursework along with the Best Overall Student Award.  I found I thoroughly enjoyed taking photographs along with the challenges of capturing the right shot and the resulting image that it spurred on my passion for photography to the point where I decided to take a 2 year Photography Course at Lincoln University again earning top grades and awarded the Best Overall Student Award.  In 2004 whilst on the course I participated in the Amateur Photographer magazine competition which involved going to London and taking photographs at various sites and actually won the Competition. Soon after completing the course I was awarded both the Licentiateship Award with the Royal Photographic Society and the British Professional Photographers Association award. 

 

Since then I enjoy and love photographing Weddings and Equestrian events in Lincolnshire, Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire and further afield.  I have been photographing Weddings and Horse Shows since 2005.
