Welcome to my web pages. Here you will find a collection of my current and past work.

My interest in photography started in an unconventional way with wanting to put something on my wall at home. This then developed in to a keen interest with a HNC qualification at Sandwell College. The body of work produced at Sandwell went on to gain international recognition by winning the My Back Yard 3 competition run by the London Photographic Association in 2007.

My photographic influences are wide ranging but I get most influence from music. My ideas usually develop with some tune in my head. I am interested in documentary work but will take on most photographic challenges.

Not yet forgotten. This video tells the story of the Ravenhall family (on my mothers side) during the Nazi occupation of Holland during WW2. Elsie Ravenhall (my Grandmother) went on to receive the award of "Righteous Among the Nations" for her bravery helping Dutch resistance during WW2. Least we Forget.

anesis in partnership with Sainsbury's Coventry put on a queen's diamond jubilee street party for the homeless, the needy, money less and lonely people of Coventry. In this short documentary video we have a look at the event, the people involved and the reasons for being involved.

A reflection on Modern Britain. Worrying to say the least. Kervin Julien and his colleagues continuing their excellent work with the vulnerable and marginalised of Coventry.

as a man walked up earlsdon street Third in a series of short documentaries about the place that I live. Earlsdon. Earlsdon Street is the main shopping area. In this short film I explore the street and what can happen in a short amount of time. In this particular film, an unknown man walks along the length of the street. Why? I hear you ask to which I reply, why not? A snapshot of a place, time and motion. Music by Kevin Harrison diesel #2 from velvet galaxy / spider mill​ 

With the growing economic crisis this sort of site may become more prolific in towns and cities across the world. I know this is not a new problem, but it is something we probably all notice everyday. Kervin is a reformed drug addict dealer. He now works for the salvation army and helps at his local church North Point in Bell Green Coventry. Part of this is to run a soup kitchen just outside the centre of Coventry. Once a week, homeless, money less, the lonely, drug and drink dependent individuals arrive to receive a hot drink and food, words of wisdom and company. In this short video I have started to explore this problem and the work of Kervin and his team and the people they represent.
