Who Am I?

In essence I am an artist who has a deep ongoing interest in personal development, alongside keen interest in physical activities such as mountain biking.

Both from and based in the Brighton area, I aspire to combine aesthetic flair and considered content with detailed production to create effective talking-point work. Initially involved with art performance and music production, I later moved to photographic, web design & e-marketing projects.

Threading throughout all my media there has always been the power of the image and I now offer comprehensive photography services in addition to website design plus:

· Portrait photography – all genres.

· Event photography – inc. a ‘pop-up’ studio.

· Product / Object photography.

· Location & Landscape photography – inc. infrared and panorama.

Event Photography

I offer either a ‘Pop-Up’ photo studio for studio quality images -or- a ‘Roaming’ photography service, where I mingle around the event capturing the guests and the ambience with a variety of capture techniques. As events vary greatly in nature and scale – contact me to discuss your occasion.

 

Object Photography

– Contact me to discuss your requirements.

 

*Post-Produced Images & Retouch/Enhancement Services.

I always prefer to work in RAW format (not in-camera processed negative files), where every file individually requires individual post-processing care and ability to make optimal, plus any further additional correction and creative enhancements. This work can take from x15 min (quick review) to over x2 hours plus (“extensive”) to complete per image. The difference between the non-processed contact sheet previews you will first receive and a final post-produced image is very noticeable.

For Retouching/Enhancement of your supplied images – please contact me to discuss your requirement and for an accurate pricing.

£15 per image – “basic” production.
£20 per image – “typical” enhancements.
£30 + per image – “extensive” edits.

Nb: When I have captured the image – I will supply you with BOTH a large-size high-resolution image file for print purposes AND the same image as a large computer web size jpeg file for use on websites or social media etc.

 

Deposits

All bookings require a deposit of 50% minimum of the agreed shoot total paid in advance, only redeemable if a shoot is cancelled x5 working days in advance, with the following exceptions:
Event photography requires greater advance notice of cancellation – agreed in advance when booked.
If the shoot includes a prepaid studio deposit then this fee is non-revokable (being subtracted from the initial booking total before any remaining amount is reimbursed).


Watermarks

The rather large (and hopefully not too intrusive) watermarks I have placed over most images on this website are purely there because they are the only effective measure that can be taken to protect online work. With social media and websites such as “Pinterest” etc, the internet is a vast sharing place and often credit is not attached when files are freely distributed and then further shared, often losing all accreditation.

I am aware that this is not always practised, as different professional photographers have different methods (often never uploading such large files to begin with). I have consulted numerous other artists about this topic and it is generally agreed that this, unfortunately, needs to be done.

Please note – YOUR order images do not have a large watermark on their private files/prints – just a usual discreet edge signature at the edge of the picture (like with a painting).


Credits

Full credit must be given to all people both in my website gallery pictures and those behind the scenes … the models and various artists who make the frames so colourful and animated and the MUA/stylists whom I have had the privilege of working with and especially those who have provided me with encouragement to pursue this activity.
