So what do you do when the words just won’t stick anymore?

Picking up a camera probably wasn’t the most obvious thing to do, so I guess I’m lucky that I can combine two great loves and get so much pleasure from the outcome.

Having acted for more years than I care to mention, you really do get a second sense as to what’s about to happen on stage, where an actor’s about to go or how the pace is about to change. This goes a long way to ensuring you capture the scene and record just a snippet of all the hard work that’s gone before.

Hopefully you’ll enjoy looking at a few of those moments in time encapsulated on this website and contact me if you have a future production you’d like me to work on.

If you’re in need of someone to capture your production for the cast and crew, do your ‘Front of House’ photographs or just help put together the images for your programme & publicity then please contact me so that we can discuss things in more detail.

Money is always going to be an issue for any Producer/Director and I’m only too aware of that. Flexibility is therefore a must and I’m more than happy to discuss ways in which we might be able to work together to our mutual benefit.

I’m well versed in both Photoshop and InDesign and am able to product Print-Ready materials if required to do so.

If you’d like to have a chat or see if I can be of any assistance, please get in touch via the ‘Contact’ page on my website.
