Fashion, Lifestyle & Commercial Photographer Bristol, Bath and SomersetSpecialising in Fashion and Commercial photography for Fashion and Editorial and Advertising Agencies all over the UK. ——————————————————————————————————————- I was gifted an old Pentax Spotmatic 35mm camera by my father at the ripe age of 8. Within months I was learning to wet print in the black and white darkrooms of the Royal Photographic Societies old Bath HQ in the Octagon on Milsom Street. From an early age the photography bug had its grip on me. I went on to study Photographic Art at the University of Wales highly regarded art campus in Caerleon. Then landed a job as a pool lifeguard! Better than MacDonalds though.
My professional photographic career started off working for a couple of years for series of regional newspapers in the Somerset and Wiltshire areas. Following this an 18 month stint at a Portrait and Makeover studio before leaving the UK to make some contacts in the snow sports circuit, the aim was to spend my days shooting professional ‘extreme sports’ athletes doing their thing on beaches and mountains. Upon my return to the UK I set myself up as a freelancer and quickly landed a contract shooting product shots for the WH Smith website. Had this work not arrived then I may never have had my own studio space.
The photographic studio is set at the base of a stunning valley in the village of Tellisford, near Frome Somerset. This work space forms the central section of a stunning converted water mill, housing a hydro turbine generating enough electricity, when at full capacity, to power around 62 houses, meaning we are running off one of the most eco-friendly energy sources possible. Combined with our strictly enforced guidelines, using only fully bio-degradable liquids, no detergents, a modern composting toilet and under floor heating utilising the warmth generated from the plant, we are doing all we can to ensure that our working day has the least impact on the environment possible. And it all combines to make the most relaxing and inspiring photographic studio spaces imaginable.
With well over a decade of professional experience meeting the photographic imaging needs for Fashion, Design and Retail clients, we are perfectly set up to help your next ad campaign or seasonal catalogue get the attention it deserves.
