Hi, I'm a modern day adventurer, elemental photographer, seasoned Stormchaser and writer, from Leicestershire in the UK. I am also an ambassador for Olympus as a pro elemental photographer.
I have been fortunate to witness and capture some of the most hostile extremes of Mother Nature, witnessed by few. Tornadoes, Hurricanes, Monsoons, Aurora, Tidal Bores are just some of my magical subjects.
I currently shoot with the Olympus E3 system, designed for Extreme. My adventures have pushed camera system to the edge. It has performed underwater (physically), in dust storms, in freezing temps ( -36C), extreme heat (120 F) and beyond. I insist on quality, performance and a robust weather/dust proof system.
I have worked with many major TV clients including the BBC, ITV, Ch 4, Ch 5, Virgin Media, exhibited at Tate Modern and Olympus Inheritance exhibitions. My elemental photographs have been published around the world and I have written many articles providing reportage, reviews and photojournalism for the National newspapers and magazines.
