A Yorkshire based freelance photographer. If you are looking for a professional photographer with many years working in the business who knows about deadlines and attention to detail then take a look around and hopefully I am the photographer you are looking for.

Having worked for over 20 years in the industry and 12 years as deputy chief photographer at the Yorkshire weekly newspaper group working for such titles as the Wakefield Express, Pontefract and Castleford Express and The Dewsbury Reporter. I can turn my hand to most jobs.

With a relaxed friendly approach I have covered many challenging situations.

Photographer of the Year at the Yorkshire press awards.

Freelancing for Action Images for over 10 years has resulted in many pictures published in National Daily newspapers. The need to work quickly and to tight deadlines is a must in this work.

Photography has never been more important than now. Newspapers, social media and websites require good images so having an experienced professional photographer create some stunning ones will make you stand out. As a photographer with a great deal of experience I can produce the kind images that will help sell your business. I am used to working in all situations and to the tightest of deadlines. Working with people who ‘hate having their photo taken’ and bringing out the best in them, making it an enjoyable experience in the end.

Having worked in the industry for over 20 years, 12 of those as deputy chief photographer at the Yorkshire Weekly Newspaper Group (YWNG) working for such titles as the Wakefield Express, Pontefract and Castleford Express and The Dewsbury Reporter. The demands on a staff photographer means I can turn my hand to most jobs and I do this with a relaxed friendly approach. This work was recognised when I won the Photographer of the Year at the Yorkshire Press awards. I know what pictures newspapers want and still have lots of contacts on the news desks of local papers.

During my time at YWNG I freelanced for Action Images the specialist sports arm of Reuters in the UK. I still continue this work now and have covered international sport and every week top flight Football and Rugby amongst others.

If you need top class sports pictures then I can deliver what you need. The speed of service I as a modern day sports photographer provide can have the pictures to you anywhere in the world only a few minutes after it was taken.
