I'm an artist. Always have been.

*taken with an old iPhone

I'm an actor, a painter, a photographer.


Everything I do is about harnessing, distilling, expanding, relating something about the human experience.


Capturing the essence of a person's beauty and intelligence isn't complex or difficult.


It's actually really easy. Keep the elements simple (a camera and a window) then all we have to do is follow the path of playfulness and invention, together. And with over twenty years of acting experience across theatre and fast turnaround television, I know the way.


At this point in time, we all need images which reach out from a screen and grab the attention of people who need us. I don't believe striking photography needs a million lights (or lights at all) and it certainly shouldn't make you feel weird, unnatural, cheesy or fake.


I believe the most powerful images a thought-leader or creative can have are those which capture your humanity. The most effective photos in your portfolio will broadcast, clear as a bell, your unique experience of life, your perspective, your mind.


Images which speak for you until you can turn up, in person.


I believe it takes an artist to draw out and capture truth and an artist with a camera is a very powerful thing.
