"I have been a professional photographer for thirty years and have shot images for a wide variety of commercial and advertising clients, but in recent years I have concentrated on major documentary projects. These have predominantly been environmental portrait series focusing on current UK issues and are often produced in partnership with a charity. Throughout my career I have combined teaching photography with being a practicing professional photographer. I am a professor of photography at the Arts University Bournemouth and a Research Fellow. The university actively supports my research and has funded several of my major projects helping to bring them to wide audiences."

"In 2010 I won an Association Photographers Gold Award for my Hard Times work produced for The Big Issue Foundation. This was a great moment in my career as the award is internationally recognised and previous winners include photographers such as Simon Norfolk and Nadav Kander." Please see the awards list.
