Originally from Boston (Lincolnshire, not America) I live in Morley, Leeds. I work at City Varieties Music Hall as a Creative Engagement Manager, and have worked in participatory arts and education for 20+ years. I also DJ and present a radio show with Buffet on BCB Radio.
I've been happily snapping pictures since my art teacher let me loose on an old Pentax in the 1980s (cheers, Mr Crowe).
In 2017 I was awarded funding by Arts Council England (Grants for the Arts) and Leeds Inspired to create 'The Real Princesses of Yorkshire.' This is my first funded project as an artist. Read more here.
My approach is candid, I like to capture things as they happen, and feel it's pretty important not to get in the way (or at least get out of the way quickly). If that means I miss a shot, so be it. I mostly photograph events using available light. Clients include: Ilkley Literature Festival, Mind the Gap, Yorkshire Festival, and Leeds' West Indian Carnival.
