My background and training were as a staff press photographer for Reuters and Getty Images. I covered countless events from Royal Weddings, to world class sporting events and conflict zones across the world. This training ground has given me the knowledge and experience that I now bring to my work as a commercial and corporate photographer. I know that commercial and corporate photography jobs rarely allow a photographer the luxury of spending excess time to get the shot, and my background has given me the experience to get the shot that is needed with a minimum of fuss and in good time. This page is a selection of news and sporting photography from my previous incarnation as a press photographer.
