Introducing leggings. You’ll never run out of inspiration.

Macro shot of a beautiful velvety red rose. Unfortunately I don’t know it’s name; as it was in the garden when I moved here. Apart from being such a great colour, it also has a wonderful perfume.

I started my working life in a press agency called Central Press Photos. After learning my trade in Fleet Street, I moved into more commercial and architectual work. I have also spent many a saturday chasing from one wedding to another. These days I photograph anything that takes my eye.
