I freelance as a travel and documentary photographger. Originally I trained in film processing and exhibition printing. In 1987, I returned to college to study documentary photography under the guidance of Magnum photographer, David Hurn. Since graduating in 1989 I have become a regular contributor of travel, landscape and documentary images to many editorial, environmental & corporate publications worldwide. These include The Sunday Times, Geographical magazine, Outdoor Photography magazine, GQ Magazine, British Airways Magazine, GEO, San Francisco Examiner, Los Angeles Times, Visa International, Cable & Wireless Plc, Dorling Kindersley, The Rough Guides, The Carbon Storage Trust & Survival International.
In 1990, I accompanied the writer and explorer, Tim Severin to retrace ancient courier routes across the Steppes of Mongolia. Subsequent projects involved journeys through Russias Far East, Vietnam, Ecuador, The Malay Archipelago, Iran and Indias North East and North West Frontiers, and most recently in Chile, Niger, Tibet and Honduras.
My portraits of British Explorers are part of the permanent collections of The National Portrait Gallery and The Royal Geographical Society of which I am a fellow and a recipient of their Cherry Kearton medal (1995) for photography of peoples and the natural world.
Currently I contribute a regular column on travel and photography in Outdoor Photography Magazine and continuing a series of photo essays about Chile for a forthcoming book.
