I am a professional lifestyle and fitness photographer. I love working with people from all walks of life and photography gives me the opportunity to do so. Especially sports is my big interest, I do a lot of road cycling myself but get to meet other people involved in different sports from weekend warriors to athletes. I live with my little family in the very leafy and gorgeous Richmond in South West London.
Photography has been a huge part of my life since my early teens and I love that I can work as a commercial photographer in London, one of the coolest and most vibrant cities in the world. My career as a freelance photographer started in a London based studio in Kennington but my story starts in Copenhagen where I was born. I studied at Sheffield College in the early 90’s which lead me to Newcastle College of Art and Design before working as an assistant in London. I started my photography business in 2000.
My photography has covered an array of different clients over the years from London based commercial clients to a local blogger all with their own different requirements.
For bigger jobs I do the photographic production from the original meeting with my client to planning a meticulous schedule for the job. It involves me sourcing the relevant team such as models, location, stylist, H&MU, assistant, catering & set builder. I also, get involved in looking after the budget, agree fees, writing up usage contracts and gaining licensing, if necessary. I arrange all the post-production, either to be done in-house or with the client's own specialist team.
My images are described as: ‘fresh, energetic and colourful’ and I keep to at least one of those themes, if I can! I am really proud to have been part of some great commercial campaigns. I have seen my pictures on large bill posters, annual reports, consumer magazines, social media, blogs, brochures, National press, posters and in Gatwick Airport. But I am equally just as proud of doing the lifestyle and portrait photography for a start-up company.
I hope you enjoy looking at the images in the galleries. If you have a project in mind write to me on firstname.lastname@example.org and let's talk.
