My main passion is photography, particularly sport, portrait, product, food and documentary style. I have begun writing a food photography blog to co-incide with my website and regularly search for inspiration through Instagram, Pinterest and Twitter. I am also working on a book that I am looking to publish within the next year based on my food photography. I use as much of my spare time to improve my skills on photography and writing through online lessons and workshops.

I take pleasure in filmmaking, which is usually based on my hobbies but has also involved other projects.

I am a very keen surfer and snowboarder which I enjoy at every given opportunity, travelling frequently to different countries which have included Mexico, Cuba, France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Costa Rica, Indonesia and Morocco. I hope to add many more to this list.

I enjoy all sports and never turn down the chance to try something new, I regularly enjoy spearfishing, wakeboarding, skateboarding, football, running, and swimming.
