I don't have a particular style and my taste in the work of others is nothing but varied - I like what I like! I'm not working within the arts and haven't been all that active since graduating in 2012 but I still dabble and have kept this page as somewhere to post my work. I'll never be a professional, I just like sharing what I do and I appreciate any feedback. I love giving and receiving feedback, positive and negative! I have been somewhat lazy with my own work these past few years but I always have time to appreciate the work of others and help where I can!

Home: Coventry, West Midlands.
Hometown: Birmingham :)
Favourite genre of music: Metal, but like with art my taste is a bit of a mixed bag.
Favourite photographer(s): Mary Ellen Mark, Anna Fox, Clare Strand, Marton Parr, William Eggleston, Mark Billingham, Annie Leibovitz, Susan Derges, Adam Fuss, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Sally Mann, too many to name.
Favourite style of art: Photography, mixed media, digital manipulation.
Operating System: Windows 8 / Adobe Photoshop CS4 / Lightroom 5.6
Favourite 35mm SLR I own: Mamiya MSX500, closely followed by a Carl Zeiss Jenaflex AM-1 and Sigma Mark 1 :)
Favourite lens for above: Carl Zeiss 50mm 1.8
Favourite medium format camera I own: Mamiya 645 1000s - although my Yashica 635 is a close 2nd!
Favourite lens for above: 80mm kit lens, LOVE the prism finder too...
Favourite DSLR I own: Canon EOS 650D - i'd love a 5D Mk III though! full frame! ;)
Favourite lens for above: Canon EF-S 10-22mm
Darkroom enlarger: Meopta Opemus 6 Colour (My home kit, used to use Durst at college and Uni). I process/develop my film at home using a Jobo CPE-2+ rotary processor (my favourite since I first learnt in college!) but I usually hand agitate my B&W these days, gotta love the Paterson kit! I also scan my negatives in when I don't have time to print at home, my scanner is a wonderful Epson V700 flatbed :)

Outside of my creative exploits I am an Optical Consultant at a major high street opticians. I have worked for the company for some 5 years (joining the opticians in 2013 having worked for the pharmacy/beauty side since 2009. I enjoy helping people and learning everything I can of the clinical side, the job has many rewards and I have met some wonderful people. If you ever need your glasses adjusting then let me know!
