A forces child, I spent my early years in Singapore and Yorkshire, then was senior educated, on the few instances I attended, at a military, private school in Hostert, West Germany.
Following a spell as an avionics technician, in the Royal Air Force, I went on to promote large scale dance events (raves) before finding employment in the world of medical devices, whereby I am now responsible for the technical training pathway of da Vinci Robotic Surgeons. I am employed full-time by Intuitive Surgical.
When not at work, I'm an avid traveller and mixed-discipline photographer contributing to many publications with product reviews specialising in conventional, 360° and three-dimensional imagery as well as aerial (UAV) photography and specialist optics (scopes). My primary photographic discipline is street and urban, but I also have a keen interest in wildlife and portraiture, my favoured and trusted kit being Leica, Canon, Insta360, Swarovski & DJI.
I have a full digital studio in Birmingham.
It’s no secret that consumers are more reliant than ever on accurate and articulate reviews to guide them through a purchase decision. I have worked with numerous publications, consumer and technical, providing images and reviews on products ranging from luggage and travel accessories, whereby I product test both pre and post production, through all camera and video equipment. My reviews are based on real-life exposure and extensive use. Please email me for a full portfolio of customers and my work.
The product review process is one built on trust between the reviewer and the reader, and any review I write is crafted with this in mind. I won't publicise anything I don't extensively use.
My goal is to provide an environment that simulates accurate, daily usage thereby satisfying test parameters that are quantifiable and realistic. All products undergo rigorous testing.
I provide a full proofreading and Anglicising service
