I was born in the UK and graduated from the Blackpool & Fylde College with a BA (Hons) Photography in 1999. After that I worked on cruise ships which gave me the opportunity to see a lot of amazing places and also to travel independently in-between contracts. In all, Iâ€™ve travelled to over 70 countries and islands.
One region Iâ€™ve been drawn back to time and time again is South America, in particular Argentina and the Andean regions of Chile, Bolivia and Peru. I speak conversational Spanish and have contacts in these countries, plus in-depth knowledge of their culture and the political and economic issues their inhabitants face.
At the moment Iâ€™m based in the UK and Iâ€™m working as a freelancer supplying magazines with photos and articles, as well as selling my images through Alamy and the PhotoShelter Collection.
