After starting out in music photography back in the late 80's in my home town of Bedford shooting on film there was a long break when life got in the way of a good time until a chance encounter with two lovely ladies performing as 'Minnie Birch' at a vintage fair in Watford rekindled my passion for music photography.


That was back in 2010, since then I've been getting out there and shooting as much as I can working for bands, promoters and venues to build up a body of work and some of that work is represented here.



I would like to tip my hat to Gareth Millar, Steve Emberton, Andy Wilsher and Mick Hutson for encouragement and inspiration


I would like to thank Gareth Barber & Kevin Bailey at Pad Presents, Jason Hall & Max at The Craufurd Arms,  Luke & Rachel Hinton at Juicebox Live,  Pete Burridge at Bedford Esquires and Adrian Bell at The Horn.


And a special thank you to Emily Jacques & Clare Foskett, without whom none of these images would exist.
