My website is long overdue for an overhaul, so for now while my portfolio is being finalised, you can have a look through some of my previous commissions and work in my blog below. Feel free to contact me if you want to see my portfolio… cheers

Truly great people are a rarity today, despite what the media may portray otherwise. For me, George is one of the rare, great people. Many wouldn’t believe from the photo that he is 102 years old, and although suffering from poor hearing he is a fit, active man. He has that charming soft American accent that captivates you when he speaks, combined with a genuine humility that is the true mark of greatness. It is hard to get him to talk about himself, which is a breath of fresh air in todays self promoting, socially networked world but he may just casually mention meeting Rockafeller as a child or spending time with General Custer’s widow who lived in the summer house next to his.
Photographing George was a humbling experience for me, especially as he is has a lot more hair than me!
I entered this into the Taylor Wessing National Portrait Prize 2014, which sadly wasn’t admitted into the final selection for exhibition. I think it is their loss as George McLean Jnr’s portrait deserves to be hanging on the walls of the National Portrait Gallery.

A few favourites of mine from a recent shoot with Dubstep producer and DJ, Emalkay. I’ve worked with Deadly People before, shooting bass maestro AC Slater and they commissioned me again to shoot promo shots. Shot on location and in the studio.

This is from a commission last year to photograph two ships from Silverseas fleet as they left Southampton docks. A rare opportunity as they are seldom docked together. Not the most glamorous of locations to shoot in but flying about with my legs dangling out of a helicopter is always fun.
