This is me...

I dropped out of school in 1989 and proudly told my parents I was going to work in the music industry and become a photographer. To say they were unimpressed is an understatement.

I moved to Nottingham and opened a studio in Hyson Green - all of a sudden a whole new world presented itself to me. 

I was soon involved in the fledging Jungle and DnB scene and working not only as a photographer for magazines, producing album and promotional photography, but also promoting my own events and creating decor for nightclubs.

In 1996 I moved to Miami, where I spent many years managing clubs, my own events and working hard as a photographer. In 1999 I bought Goldie over to DJ for us and in 2002 I returned to the UK and ending up managing Goldie and his label - Metalheadz.

Then in 2006 I moved to Ibiza to take the position of Promotions Director for Armada at Amnesia and spend two years documenting the music scene of the Balearics.

 

Changing direction in  2008 we set up Back2You in the UK - helping new bands and artists into the industry and focusing on mental health and the sometimes toxic culture that surrounds it. Im still proud of some of the artists who came through B2Y!

When Brexit was announced in 2016 we decided to move back to Spain permanently, all funding for our youth programs and mental health awareness was pulled. My photography was now focused on social awareness and sub culture.

I continued consulting for bands, labels and clubs until Covid hit. That was a rough two years - not only financially and mentally but also because my entire archive of slides, negative and digital backups from 1989 to 2018 was mistakenly destroyed in the UK.

I took me a long time to get over this - but in 2022 I decided that my passion was still there along with now only memories - so I sorted my shit out and got back out there.

2023 has been one of the best years for me in a long time - back out there doing  what I enjoy most - photographing and working with bands and artists

During my career I have photographed missiles for British Aerospace, record boxes in ray machines for album covers, Michelin chefs setting fire to kitchens, rocks stars doing what they do best, supercars, (not so) superstars, toured with music legends, produced three photography books and have seen my work published worldwide.

When not photographing or working with bands, I also undertake commercial and documentary commissions. 

My life isn't exciting, so that's about it.........
