About

My background is design and art direction, so my general approach to photography is conceptual. I like to explore themes and push them as far as I can. I aim for simplicity and strong composition.

Like many photographers I am a bit OCD, which can be evidenced by my ever expanding Collections project. I’ve also been photographing by moonlight for the last 9 years, mainly in and around Brighton, Sussex. On a practical level, taking photos at night fits in really well with my day job and the resulting commute. The greater draw though is that I love the way that moonlight changes familiar surroundings into something other-wordly. In an effort to introduce a human element to my moonlit landscapes, over the years I have experimented within this surreal environment with a variety of home-made lights and some rather dodgy dance moves which can be seen in my Walkies and Light Fight series. As a natural progression, for the last 4 years my Sleepwalking project has been documenting the nocturnal adventures of a pyjama clad sleepwalker.

I'm in the process of opening an Etsy shop to sell prints which will be lovingly crafted by Finn Hopson at Brighton Photography. If there's something you like the look of on my site that hasn't made it onto the Prints page, please get in touch and I'll get back to you with a price. Thank you for stopping by.
