About me

I am a part-time fitness and event photographer based in the North of England but willing to travel. I photograph all manner of events but mainly fast moving sports and fitness.

Sports events are special in that there is almost always a great vibe going on, being it athletes shouting/screaming or a musical soundtrack to the event. Either way it is up to the photographer to deliver photos that not only capture the moment but capture the feeling of the event. That’s what I love to do!


If you are looking for candid shots, capturing the raw emotion of an event, the facial expressions and the pure grittiness of lifting, kettle bell swinging and running then you have come to the right place.


The challenge of capturing the moment an athlete reaches their limit, when they push themselves into new territory, is what makes the difference between a good photo recording the day and a great photo recording the feelings and emotions at the time.
