CAR CULTURE. CAPTURED.
I’m a freelance photographer, creative director and writer (amongst other things, but I won’t bore you with the full list) and, as it says at the top there, I love to capture car culture. That might entail the cars themselves, the people that own and drive them, the locations where they get to show off or simply the tiny details that can go unseen.
My background is in graphic design, branding and advertising, but I’ve been mad about cars for as long as I can remember; I amassed a huge collection of Matchbox and Dinky cars when I was a nipper, most of which I’ve still got (although, like most people, I wish I’d kept the boxes). So I suppose it was inevitable that the worlds of work and passion would collide at some point – the result is the work you see on this ’ere website.
I’m always up for exciting new projects or creative collaborations, so if you have something in mind, give me a shout.

FEATURES AND COMMISSIONS
I’ve been privileged enough to photograph some incredible cars, from sole-surviving examples of their marques to cars that have cossetted the royal buttocks, and love to be the conduit to sharing their fascinating stories visually.
As well as shooting for motoring publications, I also undertake private commissions for owners that want to celebrate and document their pride and joy.
I’m based slap-bang in the middle of the country, which makes me perfectly placed for travel across the UK and beyond.
Put simply, whether it’s old or new, stock or custom, if it’s got four wheels (or even three for that matter) and it’s cool (or seriously uncool), I’d love to shoot it.
I’ve provided event coverage for many of the UK’s best-loved motoring mags, from local get-togethers to some of the world’s most revered and well-known shows.
You can take a look at some of my event photography here.
I’ve been a copywriter for over a decade, and can happily create the words that accompany and complement my imagery. Music and lyrics, you could say.
From straightforward event coverage to story-driven articles and photo essays, I can provide well-written, personable and fully researched copy in a style that’s complementary to the host publication.
The Petroleum Spirit is my blog, and it’s where you’ll find a few bits and bobs that I create and curate; things that I find interesting or that tickle my funny bone.
