I am a freelance photographic artist and photography lecturer. I create surreal, fantastical photographic images using family and friends as models within everyday locations. I like to think that I transform the everyday into something extraordinary with my use of characters, costume, location, props, light and colour. I am inspired by fairy tales, films and old masters and also artists, photographers and film makers like Cindy Sherman, Ralph Eugene Meatyard and David Lynch. I have recently created Artwork for the Brit Award and Mercury Prize nominated band the Guillemots album ‘Hello Land’. I regularly exhibit my work within a gallery setting. When my work is exhibited I use ornate gold frames reminiscent of the frames used in a traditional art gallery.
