MUSIC and SOUND.
After 15 years as a professional Didgeridoo player, performing in prestigous venues as: Earls Court, Bournemouth International Conference Centre, York and Sandown Racecourses and teaching at Eton college for four years.In this timeI also worked as a session musician on several projects.
I compose music and have created demos for the TV advertising campaign of the Ford Motor Company and the launch of the Focus C-Max through the advertising agency Ogilvy and Mather and more recently soft drinks companies and magazines.
I have also appeared in the award winning BBC2 film about the life of the poet Philip Larkin called "Love Again"
My first album "Well now ya here!" is available on CD, it is a mix of synthesizer and didgeridoo, with infectious rhythms and spoken voice. Now armed with a Tascam field recorder I am able to record dialogue for corporate video along with wildlife, weather and ambiences. I have shotgun, contact, binaural and stage microphones. I have recorded anything from Mute Swans to barbed wire fences.
Please see the Sounds page for some examples.
I have been a taking photos since 2002, when I bought my first digital camera, soon the bug bit me hard, and from there I got my first DSLR in 2004, I shot things like wildlife, abstracts, landscape and long exposure photography..
In the last 12 months I have had framed and mounted prints bought by the Tourisim Office and my photography has continued to be a growing part of my life commercially.
Due to popular request I have taken the photography of cars as a specialist service. offered to those with a car that they value and cherish, this can be a modern prestige car or a classic beauty.
The chosen image from the photo shoot can then be printed onto traditional paper and framed and mounted in a custom made frame or printed onto acrylic or aluminium panels upto six feet wide!
If you bought a classic that is to be fully restored, why not have an album done of images covering the whole restoration process, this will be something to look back at as a record of the processes used to recreate the beauty...
Of course it is not just cars that we photograph. Macro photography of small items or products for your business website and promotional items, like jewellery, toys, pottery can also be delivered.
