I have been a photographer for the last 10 years. I started taking photo's of everything that caught my eye mainly landscapes and objects. But I quickly turned to portrait photography and found this is what I meant to be doing. Today I photography people of all ages in my home studio or out on location. My style is timeless to fine art.

I specialise in limestone but also calve many different types of stone,I began calving limestone over ten years ago and haven't looked back.
