Photographs aren’t the only way to tell a story. Sometimes you need good old fashioned words to do the trick. Fortunately, I get to use both in my line of work.

Alongside my photography, I have worked as a professional writer for print publications, digital media, corporate literature, advertising copywriting, social media content, PR work, and more.

This is a small sample of some of the words I have written, including thoughts, stories and articles.

Man in the Window

Documenting life as it passes by around me is one of my favourite things to do. I see it as one step up from people-watching, as I capture the story of a moment in the wild in a single frame, sometimes two or three, and study it for longer than I could at the time it...

Two Slices and a Mug

I had a whole day entirely to myself, and so many possibilities. Inevitably, when I didnt have a plan, things didnt exactly go to plan. Funny that...This isn’t a complicated morning, but it is a break from routine. Typically, we would all be out of the door by 7am on...

A Glass of Red, and 30 Minutes

Sometimes, self-care requires us to make some effort. An expense of energy on ourselves rather than those around us, to change or improve a part of our individual self, or at least to do what we must to maintain ourselves. Tonight, I need to care for myself by doing...

Fatherhood – An Absence Explained

It's been a while since I last posted, and there's a simple reason. We've had a small human arrive in our lives - and she's been pretty needy. But now that I am back, I have some explaining to do...Finally, I am a father. It might mean that I actually grow up, but I...

The following is a brief outpouring of brain clutter. It serves no other purpose than to be an unartistic sharing of thoughts around a subject that I am certain to return to properly at a later date…

A Trip to Vietnam – via Bristol!

Taking an audience on an emotional journey back to 1970’s Vietnam is no easy feat, but the phenomenal production of Miss Saigon currently on tour in the UK transports us there in the most thoroughly enchanting way. In eager anticipation for the show’s arrival at the...
