I am a commercial photographer specialising in location work - primarily corporate documentary and large product (e.g. architecture). I help you to easily and visually show your clients where your company is different from your competition.
Lately, I’ve also served as creative consultant and director to ensure a consistent visual look and feel across all aspects of a campaign, including video/ commercials, printed materials and exhibitions – right down to lighting design. It’s no longer just about the visuals: it’s about the experience and the emotion, too.
Photography is both my profession and passion. I’ve shot commercial assignments since 2004, and been a full time pro since 2012. I’m a physicist by training – I graduated from Oxford at 16 – and subsequently left a senior corporate career in M&A/ private equity (and more recently, as a senior exec director of McDonalds) because it simply wasn’t what I wanted to do.
I have a diverse international client base including Koenigsegg, Nissan, Chun Wo Engineering and Construction, Jaeger Le-Coultre, Van Cleef & Arpels, Maitres du Temps, Richemont, the Swatch Group, Hijjas Kasturi Architects, Tange Associates Architects, Sunway Group, Maybank, Eastern & Oriental, The Boston Consulting Group, several Michelin star chefs including Fergus Henderson and Bruno Menard, The City of London and Moon Travel Guides. I also maintain a library of over 250,000 high-resolution images available to license, both directly and via Getty Images. In addition, I currently serve as Chief of Strategy at Hasselblad, and appointed a Hasselblad Global Ambassador in early 2016. I am also a Nikon Professional Services member in the UK and consultant to Carl Zeiss AG. I also contribute to various international photography publications and was previously Contributing Editor to CLICK! Magazine, Malaysia from 2005-9 and was Editor for 2010.
Please do not hesitate to contact me to discuss a project, request a quote, or a specific portfolio of images. In addition, limited edition fine art prints are available from time to time either directly through me, or my representatives Sebastian Turner at Alisan Fine Arts, Hong Kong or Dan Tamarkin at The Rangefinder Gallery, Chicago.
