About Me




I’m an engineer, photographer and artist mainly focused on landscape, cityscape and travel subjects. Please let me know what you think about my work, I really value feedback and hope you enjoy my work as much as I do. I also have a blog and photoblog that I try to keep regularly updated.

I am probably not your typical photographer or artist, being a recently graduated structural engineer. I would probably be accused of being more at home with giant lumps of concrete and steel or pages of equations than with lighting and lenses. And while I do love engineering, I enjoy taking photographs. It’s as simple as that. They can capture a moment, allow you to remember things, brighten a wall, and convey emotions, feelings and messages. I started taking lots of pictures while I was at university, and just carried on from there.

I have spent my whole life in and around Cambridge (well two Cambridges actually, I spent a year studying at MIT in Cambridge, Massachusetts). I was born here, studied here and still I live here. I love it here, it’s so different from anywhere else and it’s a beautiful city. All of the architecture, open spaces and history make it a fascinating place to photograph and spend time.

In the last four years I have done a lot of travelling and taken many pictures, which is great. They are fabulous reminders of the places I have been, but having them on display is far more fun than them gathering metaphorical dust on my hard disk. The problem is that I don’t have enough wall space. So, I have decided that it would give me a lot of enjoyment to share all of these photographs with you in the hope that you will enjoy them as much as I do.

Most recently I have been expanding into hand painted photographs on canvas. These are based on my original photography which has then been printed to canvas as an outline and then carefully hand painted in acrylic. I really enjoy making these and think they are a modern twist to hand tinted photographs.
