ABOUT ME

When it comes to photography, I'm drawn to images that hint at hidden stories, the details of which can be stitched together in different ways by the viewer. I would love to think that a picture could make someone wonder 'who?' or 'where?' or 'what?' or 'why?', even if it's just for a moment...

... mostly, I hope these images bring with them a touch of theatre and a pinch of joy... and that they might raise a smile, stimulate a synapse and charm you for a while... 

 

I was brought up in County Durham, near the brooding and dramatic North East coast, before leaving the nest to study a different kind of theatre.

 

After graduating, I settled in London and, in an unintentional but highly successful attempt to make as little money as possible, I fell into various ignominious ways to fill my days... highlights included dressing up as Superman to help German teenagers learn English, directing theatre projects in a women's prison, organising festivals of Russian theatre and Egyptian culture, managing music recitals, lecture programmes and art exhibitions and a short stint in an opera casting department...

 

In recent years, before the virus grounded us all, I've been flying around the globe with my musician partner... It certainly hasn't been boring, and it's definitely a crazy, glorious world out there.
