I was born in Yorkshire, England and I've been a photographer ever since I was given my first camera. I completed a photography degree after three years at college in London and was awarded an Associateship of The British Institute of Professional Photographers. After working with the Ministry of Defence, I started my own freelance photography business "Amber Visual", in the town of Machynlleth in the hills and valleys of Mid Wales from where I worked all over the UK and Europe for individuals, small companies and large internationals.
I've had two exhibitions of my work with images in several public collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, Wales, The National Eisteddfod, The National Library of Wales and The Millennium Collection as well as Art Galleries and many private collectors. My images have been published as book covers, calendars, posters, postcards, CD and Album covers as well as in newspapers, books and magazines around the world. I've won several awards in various competitions and even gained a third place in an International 3D contest. I was transplanted to Georgia, USA in 1999 where I worked in TV and then as a Photographer/Graphic Artist for a defence contractor before becoming a freelance once more specializing in advertising, commercial and Fine Art photography.
