My friends and family would say that if you sliced me in half I would have photographer written through me like a stick of rock! Since I first picked up a camera aged 8 it’s been a life-long love of mine. I was lucky enough to grow up in Cornwall and would spend my weekends photographing the landscapes & people of my home county. It also meant that I was close to the prestigious Falmouth College of Arts where I achieved a BA Hons in Photography in 1999.
