Born in the United Kingdom, 1989

My photography journey started when I finished School way back in 2007. When I finished school, I didn’t know what I wanted to do and working in my parents shop I saw how outdated some of the local scene postcards were. Some of the people in those postcards as children were now parents or even grandparents. From that I ventured out into magnets and keyrings which I still sell in the shop today. 

In 2011 I wanted a new way to share and show off my work, this is when I started to sell calendars with images of Frinton on Sea. In the first year I sold 35 calendars and last year I sold 237 of them. 

I have also had my work published in Essex Life Magazine on 8 Separate occasions and have had over 40 different images displayed in the beautiful Essex segment of the magazine: July 2015, July 2017, May 2018, November 2018, December 2018, May 2019 October 2019 and the latest issue is March 2020. My biggest achievement so far would be having one of my photographs used as the cover image for the March 2020 issue of Essex life. 

In the last couple of years, I have ventured into sport photography taking shots of local football with FC Clacton and Cricket at Frinton Cricket club as well as kite boarders and surfers in Frinton.
