About

I have had many different jobs in my life, and whenever possible there has been a creative element to it. As a graphic designer I have worked in editorial design and advertising. As a writer I have had five books published internationally, as well as contributing as a journalist to filmmaking and photography magazines. Music and photography have always been constant companions in whatever I do, and after an early flirtation and several detours I feel like the prodigal son returning to doing what I love best, combining photography and live music. I have worked as a house photographer for some of London’s best-known venues, including Islington Assembly Hall, The Barfly, The Jazz Cafe, The Borderline and The Garage. I also contribute words and pictures to a variety of online music magazines. Although I consider myself a true amateur, in that I love what I do, contrary to popular belief, I do work for money.

I am available for one-off concerts, whole tours and festivals, as well as portraits for PR, editorial or commercial use. My rates are very reasonable, and I offer special “pay what you can” deals for unsigned/indie artists on a limited budget. Contact me using the form below.
