Eras

I’ve distilled my personal work into galleries that mark the changing styles of my portraiture. I first shot personal work in the digital era in 2003 and I’ve owned several cameras over the years. Fujifilm S1, S2, Nikon D200, D700, Hasselblad H2 with Phase One P25+, Canon 5D, 5D mk11 were the principal cameras that I used in the DSLR era from 2003 until early 2013.

I bought a Fujifilm X100 on the day it came out in 2011. It was my first mirrorless camera and it changed the way I took photographs for ever.

 

In 2012 I bought a Fujifilm X-Pro1 and within a year of using it I had sold all of my DSLR cameras. I was invited into the fold of the Fujifilm X photographers and I stayed with Fujifilm X series until 2016 when I started using a prototype GFX50s camera. I’ve use the GFX50s ever since and always on a tripod.

My love affair with the little Fujifilm X100 continues and I am using the X100v alongside my Fujifilm GFX50s.

Genres

Throughout my career I’ve shot many genres. All the work here is from my personal collection. Shot on workshops led by me or on various 1:1 training sessions that I’ve given.

I run workshops and adventures shooting set genres but my 1:1 sessions are open to change. On a 1:1 session, you get to choose the genre, the model, and the location.

Lighting Types

These galleries showcase the dirrerent lighting styles and equipment that I use. I learned to use Fresnel spotlights in the 1980s and 90s when I was at the BBC.

I love to break up my light so there is a section dedicated to my Scatterflash modifier. It’s a product that I had designed and made from scratch.
