On this site you will find a small selection of my commercial, editorial work and including some personal portrait projects too.
I started taking photographs more seriously at 14 with an old Zenit film SLR, progressed to Nikons, developing and printing my own images.
Trained in Computer Science and with a Masters in Statistics I carved a successful career in London, eventually as an IT Manager in a high tech engineering firm suppling simulation equipment to the main Formula 1 racing teams. Photography took a back seat during this busy time in my life, and after 9 years I decided to make a change, sold up, gave up my stable employment and moved to France.
The iPhone then heralded a new chapter in my life. Falling back on my programming skills, I wrote several successful iPhone and iPad apps over 3 years. This success eventually gave me more free time and allowed me to get back to my passion for photography when I picked up my first serious camera in a long time, a Nikon D300s.
Four years and 100,000+ images later, my photography has developed immeasurably, and took a big leap again when I purchased the Fujifilm X100. I now shoot almost exclusively with mirrorless cameras. Fujifilm, Sigma and Leica.
I run a online magazine called PhotoMadd, all about shooting with the mirrorless cameras.
My clients range from local companies to worldwide brands.

I specialise in taking environmental portraits for both private and commercial clients. I prefer to work on-location and have fully portable studio gear that can operate in any environment, including locations without mains power.
I like my portraiture work to tell a story and create an certain context surrounding the face in the image rather than the usual plain studio setting.
